St. Paul company develops Uber-like service for disabled passengers

With both his own family situation and a rapidly growing population of elderly and disabled Americans in mind, Doan is weeks away from launching the “MO” platform — an online app that connects vulnerable commuters to professional drivers.

That’s “MO” as in mobility, the lifeblood of the aged and infirm. Think of his general benefit corporation, Mobility 4 All, as an Uber for folks who need someone to walk them from their doorstep to a vehicle at pick-up, and from the vehicle to the lobby of their destination at drop-off…

His goal is to quietly debut MO in the Twin Cities market with a soft launch in March and a virtual grand opening in May or June. If all goes well, he’s shooting to roll out MO in Phoenix by late 2019 or early 2020.
