April 18, 2019 12:03PM EDT
Uber wants to make sure that you are getting into the right car.
A new “check your ride” feature will send a push notification to your phone. It will include the driver’s name and photo, car license plate, make and model.
The feature will debut in Columbia, South Carolina. A University of South Carolina student was killed after she mistakenly got into a car she thought was her Uber ride.
“Check Your Ride” will be available nationwide soon.
Do you verify your rideshare before you get in the car?
