Transportation tech giant Uber will pilot a new feature of its popular ride-sharing app in Denver this summer: 911 integration. In 2016, a man in MI who allegedly went on a fatal shooting spree turned out to be an Uber driver who had passed the company's background check.
At the time, Uber told The Post the feature was necessary in India because of the country's less developed emergency infrastructure and said it had no plans to bring it to the United States. Those are both new features as well, allowing riders to share their ride information with loved ones and the police in the event of an emergency. "And you'll be able to pay for the services in your Uber app", he added.
Every week hundred of thousands of Torontonians use our app to get around their city - whether that's to get to their nearest train or bus stop, home from a late night out or for a trip where they would have otherwise used their personal vehicle. Last year's FTC charges stemmed, in part, from Uber ending use of that system less than a year after it was put in place. This lets you integrate with the emergency authorities. This makes it easier than ever to share your trip, so loved ones can follow along and know when you've arrived.
