our foray in Cox’s Bazar, the heart of tourism in Bangladesh. With this launch, both residents
and tourists will have a reliable and economical travel solution to experience the city fully with
UberMoto and UberXL till Innani and Ramu. Those who sign up as driver-partners will have

Uber has launched several safety products so that before, during, and after trips, riders feel
safe. There is an emergency number that connects riders to law enforcement, an in-app safety
toolkit, and updated Community Guidelines, which outline the behavior expected of riders and
drivers on the app to foster mutual respect. To ensure seamless post-trip assistance, Uber has
invested in a 24/7 safety response team and a dedicated law enforcement response team for
assisting police with any information they might need. press release
