Yango, the International ride-hailing service, has launched new safety features for UAE users. The technologies demonstrate the company’s commitment to e-mobility road safety consciousness across the GCC.

The new systems, including Speeding control and driving-style monitoring, build on the existing range of technologies already in use, which include SOS buttons for contacting local authorities, route-sharing, and a Safety Center integrating the most up-to-date features.

The new additions to the service are designed to enhance road safety and reduce risk. GPS control monitors driving speed during rides, sending near-immediate notifications when necessary. Meanwhile, the driving-style monitoring technology is sensitive to harsh vibrations and hard braking. If drivers continue to perform poorly, access to the service is revoked. In addition, Yango evaluates driving style based on passenger feedback.

Aside from these features, Yango continues to work on several technologies to bring ride safety to a whole new level. Among those is an AI-driven route monitoring platform allowing the Yango support team to monitor route deviations in real-time.

General Manager of Yango GCC, Islam Abdul Karim, said: “Safety of passengers and drivers remains one of our first priorities. Yango is setting a benchmark for road safety in ride-hailing and ensuring a safe and responsible ride experience for all. Our overarching goal is to empower the UAE with state-of-the-art technological solutions in ride-hailing, especially as the industry is set to have 3.25 million users in the country by 2027”.

Yango’s latest update aligns with the UAE’s broader vision for road safety. The Emirates has already embraced advanced technologies such as smart cameras to detect swerving, sudden lane changes, and illegal turns. In Dubai alone, 53 strategic initiatives now cover traffic control, vehicle and highway engineering, and traffic awareness, aiming to reduce the number of road incidents that occur each year.
