Uber Eases Transportation Challenges

by April 11th, 2016Articles0 comments

If you are blind or visually impaired, you know that transportation can sometimes be challenging. If you have a smart phone, we have a way to make getting around a bit easier. The Uber App is great because it is free to download, is very reasonably priced,and convenient for a visually impaired user needing a ride anywhere anytime. Many Outlook Nebraska associates have taken rides with Uber and have had great success. Simply open the app, input your address into the pickup location, and submit your order! Payment is also done through the app with a debit or credit card, so you do not have to worry about fumbling with cash when you reach your destination.

Need some assistance in setting up your account? Our trainers can help you get comfortable with the Uber app and many others. Call Doug Wampler at 402-614-3331 x214 to set up an appointment today.
