Request your ride before you go outside.

Verify the identity of the driver and car before entering the vehicle. The ridesharing app will show you the driver’s photo, the vehicle’s license plate number, and the make and model of the car.

Check the driver’s ratings and read the feedback before you confirm a pick-up. Cancel the request if you are not comfortable with the driver.

Keep your personal information confidential - NEVER give your name to the driver. Before entering the vehicle you ALWAYS want to ask the driver “What is my name?” If he or she does not state your name exactly DO NOT get into the vehicle, immediately seek safety inside and call 911.

If something doesn’t feel right, don’t get into the vehicle.

Sit in the back seat and wear your seatbelt.
