In an effort to solidify its role in overcoming the present pandemic, the favored app Uber introduced plenty of COVID-19 safety measures for its lessor partners and users to utilize and keep protected while moving.
From a web-based checklist and mask verification system to refunding the acquisition of disinfecting supplies and safety suggestions, the tech company says Jamaicans can take a lease within the app with peace of mind.
“Our COVID-19 tools & initiatives are geared towards keeping lessor partners and users of the app protected. All of us have a task to play and much like how Jamaicans trust the app to maintain
them moving, they’ll trust that these measures will keep them safer when followed,” said Uber.
With the app’s Go Online Checklist tool, lessor partners can be asked to finish a checklist that prompts them to substantiate a couple of preventative measures before connecting. These
include pledging that the vehicle and hands have been sanitized and masks are on.
Uber’s mask verification system works by advising lessor partners to take a selfie of themselves wearing a mask prior to connecting which is able to then be communicated via an in-app message.
For users, any person reported for not wearing a mask can be required to take a selfie with their mask on before they’ll request their next lease. If a user continues to violate the mask policy, they risk being blocked from the Uber app.
Uber can also be offering Jamaicans 3,000 free leases to and from vaccination centers that could be redeemed through the use of the promotional code 10MV-JAVACCINE. The offer ends on October 30, 2021, and is a component of the corporate’s global commitment to contribute 10 million free or discounted leases through the appliance.
