There has been a lot of talk about the new safety improvements rolling out at Uber this summer. This is all good news for the rideshare industry overall. As members of the gig economy, we all own a part in the learning and growing of better service for our customers, especially in the area of safety and security. For rideshares in particular, whether you are driving men, women, or children, safety should be #1. At Zemcar, we do our best every single day to achieve the high safety standards we have set for ourselves, and we applaud the recent efforts at Uber to make improvements in their service as well. Check out this article from Forbes on what Uber is doing, and what you can do to help keep yourself and your loved ones safe when using a rideshare service.
