Uber is trying to help out the elderly. Uber seniors in motion has recently announced a very exciting program for senior citizens called Freedom In Motion. In collaboration with the City of Gainesville, Florida, ElderCare of Alachua County, and the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, Uber seniors will provide on-demand transportation for residents of two Gainesville communities as part of a pilot program to help seniors maintain their independence with even more affordable rides. Free technology tutorials will also be available, so residents of the participating communities feel comfortable requesting a reliable ride with Uber seniors. While this program is currently being piloted in Gainesville, Uber seniors look forward to helping seniors across the country maintain their independence by providing a reliable and affordable transportation option. Earlier this summer, Uber participated in the White House Conference on Aging and discussed Uber’s efforts to further engage the senior community across the country. Alongside public and private sector representatives, Uber seniors hopes to further the conversation about the way technology adoption can improve older adults’ day-to-day lives.
