NORFOLK, Va. — A new controversial feature from Uber called Uber for Teens is now available in cities across Hampton Roads.
It allows parents and guardians to send a teenager in an Uber without an adult.
The ride would be through the parent's Uber account, allowing parents to track the trip in real time and contact the driver. There's also an added pin number step to make sure teens are getting in the right car.
The company says selected drivers undergo background checks and are long-tenured drivers with high ratings for the service.
