Dar es Salaam Uber & Safety
- No more street hails or waiting outside to find a ride. You can start the Uber app from anywhere and wait there safely for your driver to arrive. That means no standing on the street to hail a cab or struggling to find the nearest bus stop late at night.

- Trips are no longer anonymous. When a driver accepts your ride request, you see his or her first name, photo, and license plate number. You can also check whether others have had a good experience with him or her. In addition, the driver can see your first name and rating. You can contact the driver—and vice versa—through the app if there is any confusion around pick-up details.
- Share your estimated time of arrival and location. You can easily share your ride details, including the specific route and estimated time of arrival, with friends or family for extra peace of mind. They’ll receive a link where they can see in real time the name and photo of the driver, their vehicle, and where you are on the map until you arrive at your destination. Plus, they can do all of this without having to download the Uber app themselves.
- Feedback and ratings after every trip. After every ride, riders and drivers get to rate each other and provide feedback. Uber’s safety team reviews this information and investigates any issues.
