Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Face masks and mandatory selfies for drivers: How Uber rides are about to change

Passengers of some airlines are required to wear face masks on board the flight. Visitors to public places and buildings are also required to keep a social distance. Now, what about passengers in taxies and rideshare vehicles?

In-car space is such an enclosed environment that viruses could easily be transmitted. Also, rideshare vehicles, of course, are shared by many from different places. Both users and drivers feel more uncomfortable should the other(s) isn’t wearing a facemask or face-cover.

Uber is a multinational ride-hailing company that offers platforms for peer-to-peer ridesharing and food delivery services. The company now operates in nearly 800 metropolitan areas in the world. They now require both their drivers and riders to wear a facemask or face cover. To make sure they comply with the safety policy, Uber uses selfie and feedback functions to report the riding experience.

Does this help relieve or reduce your anxieties about sharing a ride with someone you don’t know?

Well, knowing who the person does not ensure your safety nowadays. You want to know if the person has viruses or not. Will we soon see a quick virus check of others like your PC?

Enjoy reading the article and watch the video to learn about another new standard for transportation.
