The company said its app will have a dedicated "safety center" feature that will include information on driver screening processes, insurance protections and community guidelines. The company is expanding its business to include bike-share, auto rental and eventually transit, which customers will be able to access and pay for within its all-purpose app. Perhaps Uber's customers won't be charioted by a self-driving sedan, but the company sees Uber as a complete solution - from home to the office, to drinks out with friends after work, and back.

"Uber paved the way for a new paradigm in urban mobility, and we're tremendously excited to power seamless connectivity".

"I mean there's a couple of times where you don't feel as safe", Futo said. The safety of the ridesharing service has also come into question in the past. This makes it easier than ever to share your trip, so loved ones can follow along and know when you've arrived. In Denver, it will go one step farther, automatically sharing the vehicle's location and trip details with dispatchers.

"More and more, Uber is not just going to be just about taking a vehicle, but is about moving from point A to point B in the best way", Khosrowshahi told an event in the newly launched Uber driver center in the USA capital.

"My first week at Uber was the week we disclosed the 2016 breach", Uber's Chief Legal Officer Tony West told Engadget.

Last year, Uber settled with the FTC over allegations that it hadn't protected it's customers' data in 2014, and actually misrepresented how secure that data was. (Previously, Uber only ran additional, annual background checks when legally required to.) "While no background check is flawless, our process is thorough, fair, and relevant to the work at hand", writes Khosrowshahi, who pledges to go even further.

Annual reruns: In the past, Uber conducted background check reruns in jurisdictions where required. He also seemed open to the idea of some additional taxes being used to improve city transit systems, but he pushed back against certain taxes, especially on multiple-rider services like UberPool, which ferries up to three different passengers at once.

Uber drivers called off strike. In addition, commuters will be able to optimise their travel, as Uber Movements will explain the effects of congestion and traffic build-up, while providing alternative transport modes.

Uber is also adding Jeh Johnson, the former secretary of the US Homeland Security Department, as the chairman of its safety advisory board.
