Uber Technologies will connect US riders directly to emergency number 911 from this summer, the latest in a package of measures created to improve the global ride hailing company's popular image.
The world's largest ride-hailing company said a dedicated "safety center" feature will be available on its app that will include information on driver screening processes, insurance protections and community guidelines.
During the ride, you cannot only monitor your trip but also share your trip details through the Uber app with friends and family.

Uber is changing how we get around and in all forms. The improvement is part of Uber's initiative that began a year ago to cater more to its drivers' needs to prevent them from defecting to competitors. It also works with Masabi to let users make payments and receive mobile tickets. (Previously, Uber only ran additional, annual background checks when legally required to.) "While no background check is ideal, our process is thorough, fair, and relevant to the work at hand", writes Khosrowshahi, who pledges to go even further.
Uber will conduct its annual background checks through a company called Checkr starting in the next few weeks.
He added, "We do see this investment in mass transit as an investment that ultimately long term is going to benefit us as well".
