Uber offers free travel to victims of sexual harassment and violence
In 2019, the French branch of Uber launched a partnership with the Handsaway platform (https://www.handsaway.fr/application) and the French association Stop Harcèlement de Rue (http://www.stopharcelementderue.org/), both dedicated to the fight against sexual violence and harassment.
Uber is now integrated into the HandsAway application, so that when victims post an alert on the application, Uber offers them a free ride to file a complaint or go to a safe place.
