New Uber rules during COVID-19 – Face covers or masks will be mandatory for everyone riding or driving with Uber. This policy is designed to help protect the health and safety of you and your driver, and will go into effect on May 18, 2020.
When wearing a face cover or mask, make sure it covers your face from the bridge of your nose down to your chin.
No front-seat passengers
To allow for more distance between you and your driver, we are advising riders to no longer sit in the front seat.
This means every ride with Uber will have one less passenger seat available. For example, rides with UberX can have a maximum of 3 passengers—allowed only in the back seat.
As the global leader in rideshare, we’re proud to put safety at the heart of everything we do. Look out for more updates next week about how we’re expanding our commitment to your safety.
