Riders with a disability can request a refund or waiver of wait time fees if their disability impacts their ability to board a vehicle within a few minutes of the driver’s arrival at the designated pickup location (currently 2 minutes for UberX or XL or 5 minutes for Black or Black SUV trips).
You may request a refund (link) if you have a disability (or traveled with a companion with a disability, or requested a ride on behalf a rider with a disability) and, in the last 30 days, you were charged wait time fees when you were at the pickup location when the driver arrived and needed more than the allotted time to board the vehicle due to disability.
If you, or an individual that frequently accompanies you on trips, is (i) disabled within the meaning of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and (ii) the disability impacts your or your companion’s ability to board a vehicle within the allotted time after meeting the vehicle at your designated pickup location, you can request a waiver of wait time fees for your account below by making the following certification. Please allow at least 7 days for the waiver to take effect. If you are charged a wait time fee after you certify, please request a refund at the above link.
