Uber is committed to providing increased mobility to all riders through the use of our app. As we work towards this goal, we’re excited to share that we’re working with the OCAD (Ontario College of Art and Design) Inclusive Design Institute to help improve accessible transportation in Toronto.
Universal Design (UD) is an approach to design that increases the potential for developing a better quality of life for a wide range of individuals. It is a design process that enables and empowers a diverse population by improving human performance, health and wellness, and social participation (Steinfeld and Maisel, 2012). It creates products, systems, and environments to be as usable as possible by as many people as possible regardless of age, ability or situation.
