It's a lot harder for older people to get around, especially if they have mobility problems or medical conditions that take public transport out of the question. Even startups such as Uber, which offer individual door-to-door lifts at an often inexpensive rate, simply can't cater for the needs of some seniors. Instead, Lift Hero has created a peer-to-peer lift service that uses trained or studying medical professionals to drive the elderly safely to their destination.
