ATLANTA - New rules for Uber riders and drivers were released last week.
One of the rule changes clarifies the company’s policy on sexual contact during a trip. Uber said there should be no sex, flirting, touching or sexual contact of any kind between drivers or riders.
"We all value our personal space and privacy. It's OK to chat with other people in the car. But please don't comment on someone's appearance or ask whether they are single. As a passenger, if you need to make a phone call, keep your voice down to avoid disturbing your driver or other riders. And don’t touch or flirt with other people in the car. As a reminder, Uber has a no sex rule. That’s no sexual conduct between drivers and riders, no matter what."
The rules also frown upon inappropriate and abusive language or gestures before, after or during a trip.
Also, vomiting due to excessive alcohol consumption is not allowed and it’s just really impolite.
