Ride Responsibly™, established in 2015 by the National Limousine Association, seeks to enlighten and inform the public in an effort to ensure safer ground transportation, as well as corporate responsibility for the rights and well-being of private ground transportation drivers. The campaign bridges an industry-wide gap between the rights of passengers and drivers and the responsibility of service providers. Ride Responsibly® encourages you to Think Before You App®.
Until all private ground transportation service providers are held to the same regulatory, safety and employment standards, it is our responsibility to shed light on the horrific and troubling incidents involving ride-hailing application services, including acts of violence, sexual assault, unsafe/unlicensed operation of a vehicle and many others, which could be combatted with safety and legislative measures.
If you know of an incident that we have not included, please share it with us.

THE PROOF: Ride-Hailing App Concerns Are Real
“Ride Responsibly’s Position:”
“It is crucial for state and local governments to develop proactive legislation as our industry continues to change and the market expands… As the global voice of the private driver transportation industry, we feel it is our obligation to create a safer and more accountable system for passengers and operators.”
“While it is important that we champion new and advantageous technology that allows our country to remain a model for the rest of the world, it is also important that we require operators to remain part of the equation as the economic and safety implications are tremendous.”
