Our COVID-Safe Ride Standards

We’re obsessed with safety; it drives our operational excellence and constant innovation.

Safety has a new meaning these days. With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are acting quickly to enhance our safety measures. We want CareDrivers to deliver safe rides in the time of COVID-19, and feel safe doing so.

COVID-Safe Ride Standards incorporate advice from public health experts as well as local guidelines.
