More than a ride
Safety of rides is a priority for Uber, which is why the company is constantly working on new features within the app. Rides offered through Uber are provided by licensed partners who must meet a number of requirements to join the platform. Additionally, the app offers passengers a number of safety features. Sharing rides with loved ones, PIN verification or safety buttons are just a few of them.
