Any parent of school-aged kids knows how difficult it can be for them to get from one activity to another. Schedules packed with after-school sports and all the other extracurriculars necessary for college resumes means serious logistics. Some teens and parents have turned to ride share services to fill the gap. Companies like Uber and Lyft forbid use of their apps by riders under 18, but it’s not exactly illegal and some drivers will pick up underage riders. Critics warn that kids riding with Uber/Lyft is risky at best. Ride shares don’t require the background checks, fingerprinting, or extensive insurance that cab companies do. They also point to sexual assault and rape accusations against drivers. Venture Beat reports that Uber alone is facing over 400 lawsuits in 2017, including some for serious driver misconduct.
