Uber is a livery service that has transformed the way commuters travel the city. Instead of hailing a cab the traditional way, you can now hail a cab using your smart phone. Uber provides detailed information regarding your driver, the vehicle you’ll be transported in, and approximated costs.
This convenient new way of getting around has become extremely popular, even with parents and families.
Uber has a family sect, called UberFAMILY. Parents who opt to use UberFAMILY can expect a process just as convenient as traditional Ubering for an additional cost.
UberFAMILY vehicles come equip with “IMMI” car seats. According to Uber “IMMI is an industry leader when it comes to the manufacturing of straps, buckles, and LATCH hardware for many of the car seats in the US. The IMMI Go seat meets all the requirements (i.e., crash testing, labeling, etc.) set by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213.”
UberFAMILY drivers are trained one on one on how to properly install the car seats.
According to UBER, UBERfamily regulations are based off of recommendations from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. For more information regarding UBERfamily click here.
