With a growing aging population of 6.8% in Delhi in 2016, there is an increasing dearth of reliable and convenient transportation options available to senior citizens. Many of them end up staying at home due to lack of these options. Unfortunately, being unable to get out and connect with other people creates isolation, which research shows can be detrimental to health. Uber is providing you with four ways Uber can be beneficial for senior riders:
Access reliable transportation
In many areas, public transportation is unavailable or inconvenient for older residents, and hailing a taxi may not always be possible or comfortable for seniors. But with a ride-sharing app like Uber, a senior rider can request a ride through the app and track the driver’s location on the map while waiting to be picked up, as well as see the driver’s identity before getting into the vehicle.
Explore the city
With Uber, there’s a lot more opportunity to see beyond the view from their own windows. Seniors can try a new restaurant, shop at a farmer’s market, and visit friends at community centers. They can discover their city again.
Learn new technology
As the world becomes increasingly technology-focused, people keep in touch with each other and build relationships through social media, mobile apps, and messaging services. Many seniors who aren’t tech-savvy miss out on these.
While senior citizens learn to use technology to help them get around, we’re giving all our senior riders exclusive discounts to help them further. Seniors on limited budgets can also use uberPOOL to save money and share rides to their next destination. It also has the added benefit of meeting new people, which can only add to a great day.
This is why it is particularly important to offer seniors an opportunity to save money on their rides. With the Uber senior discount, riders can get Rs. 75 off 10 rides each month, on top of existing promotions! That’s right, you can simply sign up for the Uber senior discount here and start to get a cheaper ride wherever you go in New Delhi!
