Uber X Challenged on Lack of Safety and Transparency

11 May 2015 | NSW Taxi Council

Triple J radio program Hack recently featured a segment highlighting critical safety failures around the illegal UberX service.

It features an interview with a woman who was sexually assaulted by an UberX driver and the lack of accountability within the Uber operating structure.

Also featured in this segment are comments from the NSW Taxi Council CEO Roy Wakelin-King as well as a representative of the Melbourne-based Centre Against Sexual Assault.

This is a significant report that directly challenges Uber’s claims that their services are somehow safer than regulated taxis.
