Our commitment to safety

We want you to move freely, make the most of your time, and be connected to the people and places that matter most to you. That’s why we are committed to safety, from the creation of new standards to the development of technology with the aim of reducing incidents.

Helping to keep each other safe during COVID-19

We’re actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and are continually working to help keep those who rely on our platform healthy and safe.

Lifebuoy or Jif disinfecting supplies in your next ride

As part of our new Door-to-Door Safety Standard, we’re partnering with Unilever to help ensure high standards of hygiene. This includes providing disinfectant supplies like Lifebuoy Hand Sanitizer gels & Jif disinfecting wipes to drivers* so you can feel safer on your next ride. We're also offering 2x cloth masks for drivers' personal use and a safety card if they wish to hang it in the car for rider instructions.

*While supplies last and subject to availability. Uber is not responsible for the products or services offered by other companies, and makes no claims about the effectiveness, medical or health benefits related to the use of such products or services.
