Tips

Safety September

October 9 / Australia

Throughout September we reached out to driver-partners across Australia and New Zealand to join us to talk about safety. At Uber, safety never stops.

The sessions were spent talking about the key safety topics and features of Uber, and how driver-partners can use them to make each trip safer. We also heard from representatives of Guide Dogs Australia and local law enforcement on the topic.

These are the topics driver-partners found most helpful.
