Reasons to Ride

Two out of 3 people will be affected by a drunk-driving crash in their lifetime. That’s why we’re grateful that you help remind countless people that there’s always a reason to ride.

You’re a Late Night Hero

Whether they’re heading home from a bar or a birthday party, our riders appreciate all the ways you’ve gotten them home safely. Thank you for helping to make the roads safer. More than 900,000 Late-Night Hero compliments have been given to drivers like you.

Your safety is our priority

We know that driving at at night isn’t always easy, but we appreciate all of your efforts to make the streets safer. That’s why we’ve built new safety features in the app to help give you peace of mind on the road.

Emergency assistance button

You can use the in-app emergency button to call authorities to get help if you need it. The app displays your location and trip details, so you can quickly share them with emergency services. In some US cities, this information will be automatically shared with 911 dispatchers through our 911 integration pilot.

24/7 customer support

Uber customer associates trained in incident response are available around the clock.

Share your trip

Friends and family can follow your route and will know as soon as you arrive.

Every ride is covered

Each trip you take with Uber is insured to protect you, your rider, and your car.*
