Just in case riders need to call 911, the TNC makes it easy for them to do so directly from their app.

The emergency button is located in a new “safety center” menu easily accessible from the app’s home screen, giving riders a quick way to contact first responders in the event something goes wrong during their trip.

The safety center also includes information about the driving screening process, insurance protections, and community guidelines (the list of horrible behaviors that will get you banned from Uber).
