TORONTO, Canada – Uber Canada and Revera Inc 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.


“At Uber, our mission is to provide convenient, reliable transportation for everyone, everywhere. We know that lack of transportation is a barrier to freedom and improved health for many retirement home residents who need to get to medical appointments or spend time with family members. That’s why we’re so pleased to be piloting UberCENTRAL with Revera to help increase the independence and mobility of their residents.” — Sheldon McCormick, General Manager, Uber Toronto

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.

“At Revera, we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to enhance our residents’ lives,” says Trish Barbato, Senior Vice President of Innovation & Strategic Partnerships, Revera Inc. “We share Uber’s goal of enabling seniors’ mobility and independence, and we’re pleased to hear from residents of The Annex retirement community in Toronto that UberCENTRAL has exceeded their expectations for convenient and reliable transportation. We look forward to completing this pilot and fully evaluating the results.”

UberCENTRAL 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.
