Why Ride Sharing Apps are Risky Business
Rapid Rover is a transportation company that directly hires and insures each and every one of our drivers. Every driver has passed a background check and random drug screenings to ensure that the safety of our passengers is protected to the best of our abilities. The same can not be said of “app-based” ride sharing services. These services allow just about anyone to become a driver with very little oversight.
Here are some recent headlines involving the drivers for ride share apps.
- Eugene Police: Uber, Lyft driver background checks have holes
- Uber driver sexually assaults ‘helpless’ passenger in North Carolina, police say
- Lyft driver allegedly assaulted Portland woman, left her in the street
- Family of man shot, killed by Uber Eats driver files lawsuit
These are but a small sampling of the reports we hear every week coming out about ride sharing apps. When you and your family need transportation to and from the airport, you can trust the uniformed and courteous drivers at Rapid Rover. Rapid Rover is the longest running PHL shuttle service with almost 55 years of service.
