Delhi Statement

This is an abhorrent crime. Our thoughts remain with the victim who has shown tremendous courage under the circumstances.

Upon being notified of this incident, our team immediately provided the local authorities with all relevant details, including:

  • driver (name, age, photo, complete driver’s license details, bank verified address)

  • vehicle (license, registration, insurance, state-issued driver permit)

  • trip details (trip data, route, pick-up & drop-off location)

Safety is our #1 priority and in India, Uber exclusively partners with registered for-hire drivers who have undergone the commercial licensing process, hold government issued IDs, state-issued permits, and carry full commercial insurance. Uber also has a GPS trace and record of all trips that occur on the platform – information that has been shared with the authorities. We will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement officials in their investigation to bring this crime to justice.

We will also work with the community, with government and the technology industry to find more ways to promote safety in transportation, particularly for women – both here in Delhi and throughout India.
