We believe that great ideas come from anywhere—inside and outside of Uber. Safety happens when we design together, to make sure we do the right thing for everyone. At the core of our innovation and collaboration with safety advocates is our desire to give everyone the opportunity to move confidently.
Preventing impaired driving
Be a designated rider
Affordable, reliable transportation can help make roads safer. Need a late-night ride and can’t drive yourself? We’ll get you home, no matter what time it is.
The official ride for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)
With the right partners, we believe we can make drunk driving a thing of the past. We’re already working on it as the official designated ride for MADD.
Uber helps make summer safer in Australia
Uber teamed up with DrinkWise to give out more than AUD $1 million worth of free rides from hundreds of licensed venues in Sydney and Melbourne in the summer of 2016. The results? Almost 2 in 5 riders used the app to help them avoid drinking and driving. Good on you, Australia.
More than three-quarters of people say that since Uber launched in their city, their friends are less likely to drive after drinking.

Working together to end human trafficking
Human trafficking is a global problem, affecting 40 million victims around the world. We are deeply committed to doing our part to help end it.
A commitment to protecting children
Uber is proud to partner with ECPAT, a leading policy organization seeking to end the commercial, sexual exploitation of children through awareness, advocacy, policy, and legislation.
Uber is one of the first companies to sign “The Code”
We’re one of the first companies in the sharing economy to officially sign the ECPAT “Code,” a voluntary industry-driven set of guidelines focused on helping travel and tourism companies prevent child sex tourism and trafficking of children.
Drivers can make a difference, too
We are taking steps to educate everyone who signs up to drive to learn the warning signs, which may save potential victims of human trafficking. See how a California-based driver-partner helped save a 16-year-old girl.
