At Uber, we’re always looking for ways to strengthen security on the app. We’re constantly developing and testing new solutions to enhance security for both drivers and riders using technology in ways not possible before. With that, we’re proud to announce that Real-Time ID Check, our latest security feature which uses Microsoft Cognitive Services to protect both riders and drivers, is now live in Singapore!
To help ensure a smooth transition with minimal time of financial burden to driver-partners, we are delighted to introduce the Uber Fastlane Programme, the choice option to get the PDVL – quickly, simply and at zero-cost. This programme was developed based on close engagement with the LTA as well as with best practices from Uber operations around the world.
As we commemorate the International Week of the Deaf this year, we can’t think of a better time to introduce our app updates for deaf and hard-of-hearing partners! In a world where people with disabilities face more challenges in a world designed for the able-bodied, these features make it easier for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals to earn a flexible income on their own terms.
