DHAKA, Aug. 3 (NsNewsWire) — Uber, the world’s largest ridesharing app that connects riders with
drivers to provide convenient, reliable and affordable rides at the push of a button, today
announced their Community Guidelines for both riders and driver-partners in Dhaka. The
guidelines explain the kind of behavior expected from both riders and drivers when using
Uber. As part of these ground rules, Uber also explained how drivers and riders can lose
access to Uber.
Respect is a two way street, and Uber’s Community Guidelines help reiterate that clearly
and concisely in both English and Bengali. Whether you’re a rider going from A-B or a
driver-partner wanting to earn money, Uber believes everyone can enjoy a five-star ride
when people respect each other’s differences and treat their traveling companions the way
they’d like to be treated themselves.
Uber’s community guidelines highlight top 5 practices to adopt whether you’re a rider or a
driver on Uber, to make the experience enjoyable for everyone:
Respect each other.
Treat your fellow riders and drivers as you would like to be treated yourself: with respect.
It’s common courtesy not to shout, swear or slam the car door. And by tidying up after
yourself — whether it’s taking your trash home or cleaning up a spilled drink — you’ll keep
the car in good condition and ensure the next person has a pleasant ride too. Most
important of all, remember that when you use Uber you will meet people who may look
different or think differently from you. Please respect those differences. We want everyone
to feel welcome when they use Uber.
Give riders and drivers some personal space.
We all value our personal space and privacy. It’s OK to chat with other people in the car.
But please don’t comment on someone’s appearance or ask whether they are single. As a
passenger, if you need to make a phone call keep your voice down to avoid disturbing your
driver or other riders. And don’t touch or flirt with other people in the car. As a reminder,
Uber has a no sex rule. That’s no sexual conduct between drivers and fellow riders, no
Everyone wants to get from A to B safely. So please ensure that you follow the local law.
Check out our rider safety tips. Whether you’re in the front or the back seat, buckle up
when you get into the car. Of course, drivers have a particular responsibility when it comes
to safety at Uber. That means keeping to the speed limit; not texting while driving; always
using a phone mount; and never driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. And if
you’re driving and feel tired, take a break. As the experts say, “sleep is the only true
preventative measure against the risks of drowsy driving.”
Children must be supervised.
Only adults can have an Uber rider account. If your child is using your account, a parent or
guardian must be with them at all times.
Feedback makes us all better.
Whether you are a rider or driver, please rate your journey at the end of the trip. Honest
feedback helps ensure that everyone is accountable for their behavior. This accountability
creates a respectful, safe environment for both riders and drivers. And if something happens
during a ride — whether it’s a traffic accident or an argument — make sure to report it by
tapping “Help” in the app so that our customer support team can follow up.
The guidelines help explain some of the specific kinds of behavior that may cause you to
lose access to Uber as a rider or driver.
