Introducing PDX WAV: Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles For Hire in Portland

May 14, 2019 | Press Release | by

The City of Portland recently started PDX WAV to help make sure that customers who need accessible transportation have equal access to on-demand transportation options with permitted taxi companies and TNCs (Uber and Lyft).

The Oregon Brewers Festival is pleased to be working with PDX WAV, which provides safe, reliable wheelchair-accessible vehicles (WAV’s) when people need them.

Customers can request a wheelchair accessible taxi by calling 503-865-4WAV (865-4928) 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
*Fares vary by company and are required to be equivalent to non-accessible taxi services.

To request a wheelchair accessible TNC (Uber or Lyft) vehicle, use the TNC’s app:

  • For Uber, look on the app for a “WAV” vehicle
  • For Lyft, add wheelchair access in settings, then look for an “Access” vehicle

*Wheelchair accessible TNC vehicles are prohibited from surge pricing in Portland
