Here are some ways to make sure your late-night ride with Uber or Lyft is safe:
- If you can, use the buddy system.
- If you have to ride alone, sit in the back seat.
- Share your ride information with a friend. Uber and Lyft allow family and friends to track your trip without downloading the app — sharing details such as your driver’s name, picture, car make and model and license plate, the route, and confirmation of your drop-off.
- Call a friend, roommate or relative and keep that person on the phone while you ride. That puts a virtual passenger in the car with you.
