Uber Riders Are Required To Take Selfie If Maskless
Uber is taking some steps to better protect its drivers amongst the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to WILX, if an Uber driver reports an uber rider for not wearing a mask, that rider will be required to take a selfie with their face covered before they can take another trip with Uber.
Uber is saying that they believe accountability is a two-way street, and have now implemented policies and built technology to promote shared accountability.
Since May, riders have been required to wear a mask. Since this implement, over 1,250 riders have lost access to the app after multiple reports from the drivers.
Since the pandemic started, drivers and delivery people have had to take a selfie, verifying that they are wearing a face mask. Riders will now be expected to do the same.
