Our commitment to safety in Ireland
You deserve to be able to move safely. To look forwards to the opportunities ahead. To be connected to people and places that matter most. Which is why we’re focused on your safety, from setting new standards to developing technology with the goal of reducing incidents.
Helping to keep each other safe during COVID-19
We’re actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and are continually working to help keep those who rely on our platform healthy and safe.
Our new Door-to-Door Safety Standard
We want you to feel safe riding with Uber as our communities start to move again. That’s why we’re introducing our new Door-to-Door Safety Standard. Powered by Uber’s innovative technology, encouraging shared responsibility, and including guidance from health experts, these new measures are designed to help protect the health and safety of everyone who uses our platform.
Face Cover Check
We ask drivers to take a photo of themselves before they can begin driving, and our technology helps verify that they are wearing a face cover.
We are working with the World Health Organization (WHO) to share safety tips and resources.
Ride Safety Feedback
You’ll now be able to leave feedback on health issues, such as a driver not wearing a face cover or a mask. This helps us improve and holds everyone accountable.
