Khosrowshahi adds that Uber will share more of its data on traffic patterns for being 'true partners to cities for the long term.' With debates around the company going on for a long time now and even the recent unfortunate accident, these plans are rather more transforming for Uber in being a global transport marketplace and not just another ride-hailing company.

Adding a new safety section to the Uber App so that riders can learn about key safety information, including tips built in partnership with law enforcement, driver screening processes, insurance protections and community guidelines. It now offers detailed information on Boston, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, plus cities in other countries.

In 2015, the board was established to provide feedback on Uber's safety efforts and think of new approaches to risk management for riders, but it's not clear what feedback or features the board has so far contributed since it was founded.
