Uber officials announced the app has decided to roll out new features which would make it easier for teens to access the ride-sharing service.
For the first time, Uber will allow teenagers under 18 years old to ride alone.
Families can also create a profile that links multiple Uber accounts so that they can receive real-time location updates.
Parents and caregivers will be able to contact the driver directly during the trip, officials say.
Uber also plans to team up with Nuna, a car seat company, that can provide safe rides for younger children.
