Back-to-School Safety With Uber

It’s back to school time, which means college students across the country will use Uber to get from point A to B — whether that’s to get to the airport for fall break or across campus for a chem lab.

When riding with Uber, it’s always important to make sure you get into the right car and stay safe throughout the trip. Here are some tips for whenever you ride:

  1. Stay inside until you’re ready to go – The beauty of Uber is that you can push a button and get a ride while you’re still indoors. No need to hang out at the curb—you’ll be notified when your driver is arriving.
  2. Check the details – After you request a ride, the app displays the driver’s name, photo, license plate, and car model in the app. When the car arrives, double check the information. When you get in the car your driver should confirm your name. If not, you can ask the driver to provide his or her name and confirm it before getting in the vehicle. Remember, you can only order a ride with Uber by using the app, so never accept a ride from someone offering you a ride home without arranging it through the Uber app.
  3. Help your friends out – If you’re with someone using Uber to request a ride who may be intoxicated, help them double check the driver and the car before they get in the vehicle. Or ride home together and split your fare.
  4. Share your trip status – By tapping the “Share status” button, you can immediately share your trip and vehicle update with a friend or family member. Meeting up with friends? They can watch your trip in real-time to anticipate your arrival. Or share it with a friend or family member so they know you get home safely after a night out.
  5. Keep that party locale private – Uber’s cross-street feature lets you enter your cross streets as a pick-up or drop-off destination instead of your address. When you’re entering your pickup and drop off location, type in the two street names. If your cross streets aren’t populating or you don’t know what they are, you can enter your exact address and then move the pin in the map to your desired location before you request.
  6. Use common sense – Uber is an easy way to make sure that everyone has a way to get home. There is no need to share personal information with your driver or fellow POOL riders. If something doesn’t feel right, follow your intuition. And if you ever feel you’re in an emergency situation, always call 911 immediately.

And remember, if you’re ever going to be drinking, plan ahead with Uber or a designated driv er to ensure a safe ride home. Check out more safety tips to ensure a smooth ride.

Centro Debuts Mobile App


Syracuse, NY – The Central New York Regional Transportation Authority (Centro) launched its first official mobile app today. The new “GoCentroBus” app provides customers in the Syracuse, Utica, Auburn, Rome, Fulton and Oswego service areas with access to real-time transit information directly on their smartphones and tablets. Available for FREE on iOS and Android devices, the “GoCentroBus” app uses GPS technology to show customers the exact location of their bus on a Google map while providing predictive arrival times to the exact minute.

“This is a significant step up in our transit technology,” said Centro Chief Executive Officer Rick Lee. “This app allows our riders to see exactly where their bus is and when it’s going to arrive at their stop. It’s reassuring information that allows them to make better use of their time, while knowing their bus is on the way.”

The app also provides customers with a trip planning feature, service alert information, and the ability to bookmark favorite bus stop locations.

“It’s not only a great tool for our current riders, but this app makes it easier to entice potential riders to use our system. The “GoCentroBus” app simplifies the process for first-time users by providing information right at their fingertips,” said Lee.

Centro representatives will be on hand at the Syracuse Transit Hub on December 13th and 14th and at the Utica Transit Hub on December 20th to answer questions and assist customers with setting up the app on their mobile devices. Customers can also access more information about the app via Centro’s website (, its Facebook (  or Twitter ( pages, or by calling Centro’s customer service center at 315-442-3400.

The Central New York Regional Transportation Authority (Centro) is the public transportation provider for Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga, and Oswego Counties. Centro’s mission is to provide safe, convenient, reliable, and environmentally responsible services to its clients with a goal of maximizing the taxpayers’ return on investment.
