At Uber, they strive to provide transportation options to meet everyone’s needs – serving every part of every community, in every city. Today, Uber is introducing uberASSIST Singapore – a new option designed to provide additional assistance for members of the community with different accessibility needs, including those who may just feel more comfortable with an extra hand when getting from A to B at the tap of a button. uberASSIST Singapore has partnered with LevelField, an organization committed to promoting the need for an environment that is accessible and inclusive for persons of all ages and access needs. uberASSIST Singapore will require top driver-partners to undergo specific training provided by LevelField on the necessary knowledge and safety requirements of people with different needs and can accommodate folding wheelchairs, walkers and scooters. (Note: uberASSIST vehicles do not have accessible ramps or lifts.) Supported by the Disabled People’s Association (DPA) Singapore, and The National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), uberASSIST will help extend Uber’s mission to help people get around their city safely and conveniently.
