Safety has always been a priority at Uber. The availability and affordability of rides on the Uber network provide the Brussels people with an important alternative to driving under influence. Each drunk driver who is replaced by a safe and professional partner on Uber’s platform represents a considerable contribution to the welfare of a city such as Brussels.

Whether you’re headed to the office, your home or a bar to meet your friends for an after-work drink, you can get there safely at the tap of a button.
