Uber Bans Drivers and Passengers From Carrying Guns

Friday, 19 Jun 2015 08:18 PM

Ride-hailing app company Uber says it is banning its riders and drivers from carrying guns.

Uber Technologies says it is banning firearms of any kind during rides arranged through the Uber platform, and drivers or riders who violate the rule may lose access to the platform. The rules also apply to Uber's affiliates.

The company says it changed its firearms policy on June 10 based on feedback from riders and drivers. Previously it had deferred to local law on the issue.

Competitor Lyft also has a "no weapons" policy. According to Lyft's website, if a driver or rider is found to have a weapon in a Lyft vehicle they'll be barred from the platform regardless of local laws on weapons possession.
