A recent Forbes article shows that Seniors are using UBER for transportation. Who knew?!
It’s a well-known fact that the United States is seeing a dramatic shift in the age demographic of the population. Census data from 2012 found that 76 million baby boomers (those born between 1946 to 1964) were living in the US at the time. And projections from the Census Bureau also suggest that 71.4 million people will be age 65 or older in 2029, or 20 percent of the US.
The social impact of this aging demographic has been discussed ad nauseam but seniors have already started taking the matter of transportation into their own hands. Despite technical challenges and unfamiliarity, a lot of them really don’t have any other options and Uber is the perfect solution for them.
