Safety Tips For Uber And Lyft Rides

Posted on

Uber and Lyft have changed the way we travel, but we should always remember: safety first. After a South Carolina college student was killed after getting into a car she mistook for her Uber ride, we’re sharing important tips.

  • Wait indoors. This prevents other drivers from assuming you’re waiting for a ride.
  • Confirm details. Check the model and make of the car.
  • Don’t share your info. Ask the driver who they’re picking up to test if they’re really your ride. Don’t share any personal information. You may even want to select a drop-off address close to home, as opposed to giving away your real living quarters.
  • Map your ride. Ensure you’re driving a route to your destination.
  • Ride in the back seat. More personal space and if you’re a solo rider, you can exit both ways.
  • Tell a friend. Share where you’re going with a friend, so they have tabs. Uber has share status and Lyft has send ETA.
