Why Safety Matters
We understand how important it is to feel safe in cities. We want you to make the very most of the place you love; whoever you are, whatever your gender, whatever your background, wherever you might find yourself. And it’s our job to provide the tools and technology to help ensure you get from A to B safely.
That’s why safety has been designed into every single feature of the Uber app. With a few simple clicks, you can do everything from checking your driver’s identity, to following your best friend’s journey home. We invite you to take a minute to get to know what’s there, so that next time you or your loved ones need a ride, you’ll be all set.
We’ve all got our own reasons why safety is important to us. Hear why safety matters to a driver and organisations who are working to make safer streets, for women, minorities, and everyone else, in cities across the UK.
Safe & the City
From telling you the nearest Safe Site if you feel scared, to helping people rate safe walking routes in the city, Safe & the City brings Uber style safety technology to your walk home or when you're on-the-go.
Home Safe refunds rides for anyone who can’t afford a safe ride home - whether that's with Uber or another ride hail service. Uber has partnered with Home Safe to provide £10,000 to cover trips for those that need it.
