Back in April, Uber positioned a kiosk in downtown Toronto that acted as a breathalyzer and called it UberSafe. The goal was to have people take a breathalyzer test to see if they registered above the legal blood-alcohol level. If they did, an Uber car would quickly arrive and take them to their destination for free.
Now that the back-to-school season is upon us, Uber has brought back UberSafe to three Ontario locations. Uber noted that they want “students to know that Uber makes getting a safe ride home easier than ever.”
