Uber Offer Rides to Old Folks Without Smartphones
TORONTO, Aug. 25, 2016 /CNW/ – Have you heard of Senior Living Sector? It’s basically a retirement home for old folks like the state of Florida except that Senior Living Sector comes with long term care and assisted living. Uber Canada and Senior Living Sector Provider Revera are testing a new and innovative way for retirement home residents to get where they need to be easily and reliably with the launch of UberCENTRAL.
UberCENTRAL is a platform designed to connect individuals without smartphones with transportation by allowing businesses like Revera to request, manage and pay for multiple Uber rides on behalf of others.
With UberCENTRAL, Revera will be able to make it easier for those residents who don’t have smartphones to go about their day – whether they’re heading to an appointment, visiting family or running errands.
UberCENTRAL is not just for old folks, it is designed with all kinds of companies in mind — from seniors’ centers and retailers to car dealerships, hotels, and more.
Revera is the first company in Canada to pilot UberCENTRAL.
Revera is a leading owner, operator and investor in the senior living sector. Through its portfolio of partnerships, Revera owns or operates more than 500 properties across Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom, serving more than 50,000 seniors. The company offers seniors’ apartments, independent living, assisted living, memory care, and long term care.
