This prevents you from standing outside in a telephone in your hand and signaling to passing motorists that you are waiting for someone to pick you up. Instead, wait until your driver is close or has arrived before you leave.
Confirm the details when the car arrives
Don't just look at when your driver arrives. Pay attention to the car's make, model and color as well as the driver's name and photo.
Be sure to match the license plate on the screen to the one you see in reality.
Map your own route during the trip
This is especially important if you are in another city and are not familiar with the route. By monitoring your own GPS navigation, you will see if the driver walks you astray.
Do not share private information with your driver
This includes your personal phone number. The Uber app automatically encrypts both the driver's number and the passenger's digits to protect both sides & # 39; privacy.
You should never share credit card information with the driver. All Lift and Uber ticket prices are paid via the app and tips can also be added there.
Ride in the back seat
If you are the only passenger in the car, riders in the back provide both passenger and driver more personal seats. It also ensures that you are able to get out on both sides to avoid traffic.
Tell a friend where you are going and who you are with
With both Lift and Uber you can quickly and easily share who your driver is, where you go and when to get there.
