    Doesn't this already exist everywhere?  Local services are usually readily available.  Remember, many elderlies cannot drive and they still have to get to the doctors.  Uber minus app is basically just another taxi service.  I see a lot of irony in this one.

    Also wonder why Uber even bothers to capture this market.  Just extending its monopoly, I guess.

      What's your point? That's true whether they are taking an elderly person to the doctor or a millenial to work in the morning.

    Marketing ploy.

    BTW, Uber must have just seen this news on how people are calling Uber over 911  They saw it as an opportunity to take over ambulance service completely.

    A lot of elderly people can really use this. Getting to and from the doctor's is a challenge.
