Uber for women's safe commute


Uber for women's safe commute

Nabiha is a working woman. She often needs to go outside for urgent businesses. Today, the driver of her personal vehicle is absent, but she needs to leave now for an urgent meeting. She doesn't want to ride CNG autorickshaws, as she doesn't feel safe enough in those. She is looking for a safe and reliable medium for commuting.
In such a situation, Nabiha can opt for ride-sharing services like Uber. These services are reliable for fast and safe commute. Uber trips can be tracked easily, as they are under constant GPS surveillance. Riders can also share live location with their loved ones. Riders can see the driver's name, photo, rating, etc. before getting on the vehicle. This is really helpful in case the rider needs to report any unpleasant incident.
The Uber app also has a 'Safety Toolkit' for the riders' safety. This allows riders to call the emergency number 999 by only pressing a button. The 24x7 safety line provides riders with the option to get in touch with Uber's safety team, should they have an urgent, non-emergency issue, during a trip or up to 30 minutes after the trip ends. The feature Ridecheck 3.0 flags certain trip irregularities. Uber representatives will then contact the rider and driver to check on their safety and understand the reason behind the irregularity. Besides, Uber's insurance policy ensures compensation for the riders in case of any accidents.
Riders' safety is Uber's biggest concern. Therefore, Uber can be a reliable companion for women's safe and secure commute.
The ride hailing giant Uber operates in over 700 cities worldwide. In Bangladesh, Uber is currently serving the people of 11 cities of all 8 divisions of the country with a wide range of products: Uber Moto, X, XL, CNG, Premier, Rentals, Connect and Uber Intercity. Riders and drivers of Uber are offered with many facilities including safety features and insurance coverage if there's any mishap while ON TRIP.
