Digital Safety Cards provide clearly illustrated tips and techniques to empower commuters with physical safety. Integrated into existing Maas and ride-hailing apps, Safety Cards are free to access by users and easy to understand by everyone.
Utilizing the elegantly simple solution of safety cards in airplanes, our API integrations sends data in real time to mass transit controllers and ride-hailing developers who can monitor hot spots for users and significantly improve rider safety.
The 7-minute Safety App Gap
After the media attention surrounding women’s safety in recent years, companies such as Lyft and Uber have added an SOS button to their apps. A number of tracking apps have been brought to market as well. While the integratons and apps are commendable, they are solutions that leave a gap.
From first alert to location arrival, the shortest recorded emergency service response time is 7 minutes. Whether using the metro, taking a cab, or walking, a lot can happen in those 7 minutes.
Integrating Safety Cards into rideshare and mobility apps through API technology, allows women access to immediate information on how to disrupt, de-escalate and get away in that 7-minute gap before help arrives.
How it works
Businesses and mass transit systems can integrate the Safety Cards functionality through our Public API or our Enterprise Suite (which includes SDKs for offline use).
Mass Transit Systems
Safety cards can be integrated into MaaS ticketing systems, providing transit authorities with real-time data on potential hotspots for riders, so cities can focus safety resources on specific locations, saving millions per year in budgets normally allocated to additional police presence.
Safety cards can work with existing ride-hailing apps to reduce churn and increase customer loyalty.
Working in tandem with tracking apps gives users tools to navigate those 7-minutes while waiting for help to arrive.
