Urgent.ly Partners with Uber to offer Roadside Assistance to Uber Drivers, Discounted Coverage for Uber Visa Debit Cardholders

Urgent.ly, the world’s most advanced roadside assistance platform, has partnered with Uber to provide roadside assistance services for Uber drivers. With industry-leading response times powered by a digitally connected nationwide service network, Urgent.ly can help Uber drivers hit the road with confidence. With Urgent.ly, Uber drivers know that if they experience a breakdown, they’ll get fast help and be back on the road quickly. Uber drivers who purchase roadside assistance with the new Uber Visa Debit Card receive coverage at a discount.

Uber introduced the Uber Visa Debit Card to help drivers keep more of what they earn and earn more for what they spend一on and off the road. Cardholders receive valuable savings and cash back through partnerships with Advance Auto, Exxon, Jiffy Lube, Mobil, Sprint, Walmart, and Urgent.ly.

Urgent.ly provides the fastest, safest and most reliable service, digitally connecting Uber driver-partners with the nearest available and qualified service provider. Drivers receive live status updates and watch in real-time as their towing and roadside assistance professional arrives -  just as Uber riders track their Uber driver.

Many individuals and local authorities have already jumped on the opportunity to remind users to drive safely. There are even signs popping up on highways to encourage safer driving.

Luckily, there are tools out there to help the tech-obsessed (or the poke-obsessed) improve their driving. One of our favorites is an app called TrueMotion Family! The app analyzes your driving in order to provide you with a score - and insights as to how you drive. It's perfect for parents who want to monitor their teen drivers. The app gives parents the power to see where their kids drive, and produces a 'report card' on their driving in addition to an assessment of whether they were driving distracted (using their cell phone). Plus, families have access to roadside assistance on-demand from right within the TrueMotion app.

I don’t remember Ash, Misty, or Brock driving cars in their quest to be the very best, like no one ever was. And there aren’t vehicles any in PokemonGO. At Urgent.ly, we love the game and just like you, we’re prepared to travel across the land searching far and wide to catch 'em all, but we encourage you to put safety first in your travels! Remember that the power of Pokemon is awesome in augmented reality but automobiles are a powerful tool meant for use in the real world and require optimum focus to operate safely. In a world we must defend, you can start by driving safely, and catch and train ‘em all when you’re not operating a vehicle.
