Nobody’s a Stranger

Uber riders can see their drivers photo, name, vehicle type and registration as well as the driver’s star rating when booking – providing riders with all the information they need to ensure a safe and secure ride before even stepping into the car. Drivers can also see the rider’s first name before they hop in.
