Accessible Driving in Wheelchair Access Vehicles
Wheelchair users or scooters may request driving in a wheelchair access (WAV) vehicle. UberWAV drivers are authorized to provide safe transportation and assistance to persons with disabilities.
Fast, flexible driving

The average time to arrive is 15 minutes – driving is tailored to your life, and not vice versa.

Drivers that fit into your budget

Driving on uberWAV can be compared to driving on the uberX service, our basic driving choice which is on average 40% cheaper than the taxi fare.

Drivers trained to help you

Each uberWAV driver is trained to help you get in and out of the car.



Open the app and enter your destination in the ‘Where to’ box. Once you confirm your pickup and destination addresses are correct, select ‘WAV’ at the bottom of your screen. Then, tap ‘Request WAV’.

Once you’ve been matched, you’ll see your driver’s picture and vehicle details and can track their arrival on the map.



Check that the vehicle details match what you see in the app before getting in your uberWAV.

Your driver has your destination and directions for the fastest way to get there, but you can always request a specific route.


Exit the vehicle

You’ll be automatically charged through your payment method on file, so you can exit your uberWAV as soon as you arrive.

Remember to rate your driver to help keep Uber safe and enjoyable for everyone.
