We’re honored to be recognized as a winner of AARP Innovation At 50+ Award and be included among the mobility options that AARP is recommending to older adults. As highlighted in AARP’s “Need a Ride? You Have Options” guide:
If you can’t or don’t want to drive anymore, there are options to getting where you want to go besides public transportation. Ride-hailing and peer-to-peer services have taken some of the sting out of giving up the car keys.
The article goes on to highlight GoGoGrandparent as the only provider selected by AARP to be recommended for as a way to access Uber or Lyft without a smartphone:
A new kid on the ride-hailing block is the startup GoGoGrandparent, which allows you to connect to Uber or Lyft by just making a phone call — no smartphone app necessary. Cofounder Justin Boogaard was living with his grandmother when she saw him using Uber frequently and wanted to use it herself. When he explained that she couldn’t summon a ride without a smartphone, she suggested he create a company that would allow people without smartphones to use the on-demand car service, too. He did, opening access to Uber and Lyft to his grandmother and millions of other Americans.
We’re honored to be recipients of AARP Innovation At 50+ Award and are looking forward to continuing to innovate to help AARP’s 38 million members stay in their homes longer!
