In an effort to address a very specific concern that goes mostly unaddressed by current companies in the area, this safe car service is described as a "high security Uber." Focusing on offering the safest trips, Brazilian startup Bluclub provides armoured vehicles as well as drivers with training in defensive driving.
Currently in beta mode, the on-demand platform is available for interested parties in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. The safe car service delivers security by ensuring all Bluclub drivers take classes in defensive driving. All vehicles they use are also armoured. Customers purchase ride packages beforehand.
While similar ride-share ventures are increasing in popularity due to the convenience of the on-demand model, peer-to-peer businesses can raise safety concerns. Bluclub addresses this issue.
