My uncle is intellectually disabled. He struggles with reading and smart phones. We are trying to figure out a way we can set up a ride share for him on the nights he works later than the bus runs. Uber it seems you can set up a ride for someone else, and you can set up a ride in advance, BUT you cannot set up a ride in advance for someone else. I tried searching Lyft, but it seems that is not a guarantee of a ride. HELP! My mom cannot stay up til after 11 two nights a week to set up his Uber. 


We know about Uber Assist, but he has royally screwed up his smart phone. It is in the process of being fixed. Thanks in advance!!

    Check out gogograndparent. It allows you to use a regular phone to request a ride, and makes it easier to request a ride for someone else. Not exactly sure how it works with scheduling tho.

    This reminds me of the desired feature where you can warn the driver of certain conditions.  There's a way to share certain things but the latest I heard was the ability to hear. being deaf.

    Not sure if there is a way to do this. Perhaps calling and creating a relationship with a local taxi company?  They still do exist.

    Can you just log into his account on your phone and book it in advance that way?
