Sexual assault and gender-based violence don’t belong anywhere in our communities. Which is why Uber is committed to help stop incidents before they happen—by partnering with and learning from women's safety groups, building tools and policies, promoting awareness, and empowering our community of users.
If anything happens, 24/7 support is available in the app from a specialized team of Uber agents who are trained to handle sensitive reports.
Victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment—whether riders, drivers, or employees—are free to bring individual claims in court and share the facts of those claims. Learn more about how we no longer require mandatory arbitration.
