Uber launches 911 integration pilot in Pinellas County

Pinellas County

Uber announced on Wednesday that it is expanding its 911 integration pilot to include Pinellas County.

Currently, if a rider uses Uber’s emergency button during a trip, their real time location, car make and model and license plate number are surfaced so the rider can give that information to a 911 dispatcher.

With 911 integration, that information is automatically transmitted to 911 and does not need to be conveyed verbally.

Uber is partnering with RapidSOS to pilot 911 integration with local emergency authorities.
