Some Uber safety rules to keep in mind during Orlando United Day:

  • Know Your Uber: There will be multiple people requesting rides during the services, so make sure you get into the right car with the right driver. Double check your driver’s car model, license plate, and photo in the app before getting in the car. Uber rides can only be requested through the app, so never accept solicitations from those claiming to be Uber.
  • Share Your Trip Details: Need to let friends, family or your group know when you’ll arrive? Share your trip details with them from the app so they know where you are in real time and when you’ve safely arrived.
  • Contact Support: Don’t worry, you can contact your driver directly in the app to track down a lost item. Or contact our Help Center for all other issues. Trust your instincts and be aware of your surroundings. For emergencies always call 911.
  • Be Kind and Respectful: Please be considerate of your driver. Respect their vehicle and follow our Community Guidelines so that everyone can enjoy the ride.
