living in nyc || safety tips with Uber

How has it been one full week of living in New York City?! Time is really going to fly by living here, y’all! I already love it here SO much and can’t believe I didn’t move here sooner!!

One common question I received from y’all regarding my move is whether or not I’ll miss my car and as of now, my answer is no. I’ve had a car and have been driving ever since I was 16 (the same car too!) and I was honestly STOKED to sell my car and not have to drive for a while. I love riding with Uber whenever I can just because it allows me to actually get work done on-the-go. A lot of the time I’ll be riding solo to meetings or events and it’s so convenient to be able to request a ride with Uber and hop right in my ride, without having to drive myself.f

That all being said, there are certain safety measures I take before I even hop in a ride with Uber to begin with and I’m excited to partner with Uber to share their Check Your Ride initiative!

Next time you request a ride with Uber, follow their 3 “Check Your Ride” steps to make sure you get into the right car with the right driver-partner. Here’s a breakdown of what you should do:

  •     CHECK THE LICENSE PLATE
    •  Always, always do this! Take a moment just to confirm the license plate matches the one in-app before you get in your ride.
  •     CHECK MAKE & MODEL
  •     CHECK DRIVER PHOTO

Everything above is easily accessible in-app! I can’t emphasize how important taking those 3 precautionary steps are for anyone out there requesting rides through Uber no matter the time or day! Doing these steps will only take a minute of your time and are great safety measures to take every time you request a ride with Uber.

Let me know if y’all have any questions but you can refer to this page right here for more information! Chat soon, xo!
