Our vast network of riders and drivers holds one another accountable to help keep everyone safe.

San Francisco: 5 minutes could make all the difference
In San Francisco, the typical Uber trip was less than 5 minutes away from the city’s 285 impaired-driving arrests in 2017. That means the possible injuries and consequences from driving under the influence could potentially be avoided with a short wait for a rideshare.
London: requests for rides at night exceed rush-hour requests
In London, there’s greater demand for rides with the Uber app around closing time for pubs and other nightlife locales than around the evening rush. This graph shows how demand changes throughout the day.
