Safety by Design

Uber launched in Singapore back in January 2013 – our first market in Asia. Since launch, Uber has become an integral part of Singapore’s community and transportation infrastructure by moving riders around more efficiently and effectively than ever before.

Millions of people across the globe rely on Uber for safe, reliable, and affordable transportation every day. Putting safety first for each of the millions of trips means setting strict safety standards, then working hard to improve them every day.

From start to finish, safety is built into every step of the Uber experience.


From pickup to your destination, comprehensive commercial insurance covers every Uber ride.

Driver Application Process

Every driver clears a third party background check, attends in-person training, and possesses valid documentation before they can drive with us.

Nobody’s a Stranger

Your driver’s name, photo, and vehicle information appear in the app so you always know who’s coming to pick you up.


To protect your privacy, your feedback after every trip is anonymous, and your telephone number is hidden from your driver.

Share your ETA

Share your ETA, including real-time GPS location and critical trip information, with friends and family to keep track of your ride and safe arrival.



Our global roadmap for safety

We are committed to constantly developing new technology tools and processes that improve safety. Our existing and recently implemented safety practices here in Singapore are all part of Uber’s global commitment to implementing new technologies to keep riders and drivers safe in every city.

We will continue to innovate and improve every day because we care about the thousands of Singapore riders and drivers who put their trust in us every minute of every day.
