NEW YORK (PIX11) — Uber launched a new service for teens in New York City on Monday, allowing 13- to 17-year-olds to hail a ride on their own. 

The parent, the teen or the driver cannot turn off the safety features. 

Teens must give their driver a unique pin to ensure they’re in the right car. Additionally, there is an encrypted audio recording that allows parents to watch the ride and make sure there are no added stops and it doesn’t go off track.

The safety features are automatic if they use a teen account. The features are not available when parents hail a ride for their child using their own parent account.

Uber said all of its drivers have five-star ratings and hundreds of rides. 

By next week, teens will be able to order food through Uber Eats. Down the road, Uber said it plans on helping parents enable a spending cap to manage their teen’s budget.
