Our commitment to safety

We want you to move freely, make the most of your time, and be connected to the people and places that matter most to you. That’s why we are committed to safety, from the creation of new standards to the development of technology with the aim 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.

  • In this together

    All riders and drivers must wear a face cover or mask when using Uber.

  • 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.

  • Health and safety supplies for drivers

    We are working to provide drivers and delivery people with health and safety supplies like face covers, disinfectants, and gloves to deliver food.

  • Expert-led guidance

    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.
