More and more women today call out Uber drivers who creep them out. Think about it. Anyone can drive for Uber. Weren’t we all told as children NOT to get in cars with strangers? Yet, here we are, doing that exact thing.
Reddit user pennyandthejets posted a story about her experience with an Uber driver who asked for her phone number. She wrote:
“Last night I got an Uber home from the bar I was at with my boyfriend and friends. I was alone, and the driver seemed nice. We talked about bars we like, our jobs, and where we are from. Then he asked for my number, so we could hang out. I didn’t give it to him. Today, I got a message saying I had been reported for inappropriate behavior. I reported the incident to Uber because I felt it was extremely unprofessional and it made me feel unsafe. Has this happened to anyone else??”
That’s crazy! And she’s not alone. The internet is filled with stories of women and men who have had a bad, creepy experience with an Uber driver.
That would have never happened if she had hired a private car or limousine service like Boston Corporate Coach™. That’s because professional transportation companies take the time to vet their employees through comprehensive background investigations. Some transportation companies take it one step further and require their drivers to undergo intensive training before they get behind the wheel. Compare that commitment to service with Uber’s which recently added some much-needed safety features to their app to be used WHILE passengers are in the car. Even with the new safety features, experts warn the changes amount to small steps toward a safer rider experience.
