4 Safety Features your Mum Wants you to Use

September 11, 2017 / Singapore

Mum is always worrying about you. When you’re at work, with friends, even as you’re reading this article. So, we’ve built safety features to keep every mum in Singapore breathing easy. Use these features today – and every day, for your mum.   

1) Get in the right car

To make your Uber experience as seamless as possible, we’ll make sure you get into the right cars. Identify your ride with one of our most requested features – you can now see the color of your car on your app screen before it approaches!   Now, when you request a ride, the car icon on the map will match the color of your driver’s car.

This will also be displayed with the rest of your driver’s information including the car brand, model and registration details.  

2) Share your trip status

Is your mom asking where you are, when you’ll arrive and who is driving you? Answer all her questions with one tap. When you request a ride and a driver accepts, you can swipe up on your app screen and tap Send Status. This shares your trip details with friends or family.

This would include your driver’s name, photo, vehicle, and where you are on the map to a friend or family member in real time, so they know when you’ve safely arrived!  

 3) Multiple destinations (you can drop your friend off)

Meeting friends for a late night supper run? Get home safely by sharing your ride and setting multiple stops! Add up to two extra stops along your route with Multiple Destinations.

How to set additional destinations:

  • Open your app
  • Tap on the “+” next to the destination box to add stops at any point before or during your ride
  • Add, change, or remove a stop from the on-trip screen, accessible from your app home screen

Uber’s Split Fare feature also allows you to divide your fare equally among your friends, making Uber the easiest, low-cost way around town.  

 4) A safe ride for your child

Bringing along little ones? Let their moms heave a sigh of relief with Uber Car Seat – a safe, reliable, and convenient option for traveling with children. All our driver-partners equipped with an IMMI Go car seat are trained and certified on keeping the young ones well strapped. The Uber Car Seat is affordable too! All you need to do is pay $5 on top of your normal uberX ride.

To book an Uber Car Seat:

  • Enter your destination in the ‘Where to’ section in the Uber app
  • Scroll to ‘Extra Seats’ and tap ‘Car Seat’
  • An Uber Car Seat ride will be there within minutes

You safety is our priority, but we know it’s your mum’s top concern. Request an Uber and use our safety features to get where you need to be safely and comfortably.
