Send Uber rides to loved ones using StayClose app

Not at home and your family member falls ill? Late for office and your son missed his school bus yet again

StayClose app may put an end to all your day-to-day problems.

Users will be able to send an Uber ride to their loved ones whenever they need it, anywhere across the world, with just two taps. No need to juggle texts and calls, or try to connect them to the driver—it&’s simple and hassle-free.

Moreover, the best thing is that you don’t need to pay.

Touchkin, the predictive care platform, joined hands with Uber on April 4 to unveil a new ‘send a ride’ feature on its StayClose family care app.

With ‘send a ride’, the StayClose app allows users to arrange a pickup for anyone in their contacts list. It uses Uber&’s APIs to send them a ride, even if they don’t have the app installed.

Commenting on the partnership, Jo Aggarwal, co-founder and CEO of StayClose said, “The StayClose app helps people care for their loved ones while being away. You can actually go the last mile and do something about an unwell sibling or parent. Sitting in London, you can book an Uber in India to take your parents to the doctor."

Saad Ahmed, India BD Lead at Uber added, “India has been a significant source of ideas that are relevant globally, and we hope that StayClose will become an important part of our innovation and partner ecosystem.”

The StayClose app is available for free on Google Play and the Apple App Store.
