In case of an emergency
Call 911 when you can do so safely if you witness a situation you believe is an emergency. Remember to note names, descriptions, and locations.
You can also call 911 directly from the Safety Toolkit, which you can access through the shield in the Uber app while you’re online. When you call 911 through the Safety Toolkit, you can see your real-time location, both on a map and as an address, so you can verbally share it with the 911 operator.
Uber has teamed up with RapidSOS to pilot 911 integration with local emergency authorities. When a driver (or rider) uses the emergency button in our pilot cities, key details like location, license plate, and the make and model of the car will be automatically sent to the 911 dispatcher.
