Uber has just released a new feature called “Teen Accounts” that allows you to a) let your teen link to your Uber “Family Profile”, b) give you peace of mind when it comes to where they are, and with whom they're riding.
The new feature sends only highly rated drivers to pick up your teens, and it gives parents their contact info plus access to pictures of the driver and their vehicle; It also lets parents see where their children are for up to 20 minutes after their ride ends!
That's the good news. The bad news is the feature hasn't been rolled out nationally yet...It is still being tested in just a couple cities. But if you have a student at Ohio State...you're in luck! Columbus is one of the test markets.
