Womens Safety: Uber Bans?

It makes me uneasy to think that women’s safety is as important part of airport visits, hotel stays,rideshares or taxi travel as planning your actual vacation. Unfortunately that is the case. A lot of safety issues have been focused on rideshare programs like Uber, which remains a subject of controversy and success.

Uber Financial Success

Uber Travel Safety

We have mentioned many times that there are safety concerns with rideshare programs of which Uber is the biggest. I am basing this just on what I see reported. Yes there are good Uber drivers as well as bad, but many of the problems are fixable or at least addressable.

Uber Risk

Uber risk, as I call it, has been addressed in some cities and countries. I saw an article that mentioned they were banned in some cities. But as I read further many of the cities really did not ban them, they just wanted more transparency in driver backgrounds which is the same legal standard as taxis.
