Are you a low rated passenger? Have an average of less than three stars? Well, if that is the case then you should better watch out. This is because your low rating can make you lose access to your Uber account!  You would be wondering why and how, right? Well, let’s make it clear to you.


Many of us wouldn’t  have noticed that there is a section in the Uber app which allows the driver to rate the rider/passenger, just as we rate the driver, as the ride ends. And if your passenger rate is constantly low (less than the three stars) then Uber will take a step towards restricting your access to your Uber account for better results.

This may seem bad news for you but the good news as well, awaits!

The feature of rating the passenger is a major step taken by Uber for maintaining the driver’s safety. There are three parts of safety services provided by Uber. With this feature,  drivers quite like their passengers can do the same i.e give ratings based on their experience. In this way, drivers can ensure their safety too and their families can keep a track on their location to keep away from all the stress.


This news comes as a source of happiness for a plethora of drivers for whom safety comes at the top of their priority list. Many people also feel that this initiative is one of the best methods to create a mutual respect between driver and passenger. The initiative serves as a great example for Uber’s competitors and is a great news for drivers who arrive home late at night to make sure they do their duty properly. This displays the affection of Uber owners towards their drivers and how they are managing to uplift their skills and safety.
