Uber vehicles

Lahore – November 18, 2020: As a part of their global #MoveWithSafety campaign, Uber Pakistan’s General Manager, Saad Naveed Pall endorses rider and driver safety, with the protective shields that have been installed in Uber cars and auto-rickshaws in Pakistan designed to add protection against Covid-19.

This initiative is a part of Uber’s $50 million global commitment towards rider and driver safety, which also includes providing hygiene kits with masks, sanitizers, and anti-bacterial wipes to drivers, along with the installation of car separators in highly active Uber vehicles.

These partitions are designed to minimize the airflow between passengers and drivers, preventing air-borne water droplets from travelling. Continuing to put safety as a priority for all, these protocols are in addition to the core safety features already introduced on the Uber app to maximize protection, which include GPS tracking, two-way accountability, driver screenings, real-time ID check, trusted contacts, and caller anonymization.
