Yeah, going to have to believe Uber over Buzzfeed on this one. If there had really been as many sexual assaults and rapes as Buzzfeed claims, the taxicab companies would have been on the national news blaring the information to anyone who would listen.

I drove a N.Y.C. Mediallion taxi not too long ago & to get a hack license you had to pass a criminal backround check-Uber hires anyone with No checks outside of a drivers license ( which in N.Y. is not enough) This Uber outfit is all about making as much $$ as it can while breaking laws all over the place.

I rode Uber once. Just once. The driver started asking me really inappropriate questions. Never again.

Uber is probably more trustworthy than the bogus methods used by Buzzfeed, but 5 allegations in 3.3 million rides is a ratio of 0.0000015, or 0.00015%. Unless they are extrapolating a smaller number of incidents based on an estimated ratio of true incidents per allegation, it looks like they did the math wrong.

You should had told him off. Our driver just asked us how we want to get there and what we're cosplaying, lol

Did you report him? Uber (or ANY service-related company, for that matter) can't fix what they don't hear about.

You can review your experience after every ride using the Uber app. (like the picture accompanying this article notes) Drivers that seem skeevy are the kind of thing Uber needs to know about.
