Ensuring Child Safety in For-Hire Rideshare Vehicles

The objective of this research was to develop a guide to identify and prioritize the types of behavioral interventions needed to improve child passenger (defined as children under 13 years of age) safety in the for-hire rideshare environment, including taxis. The guide should include tools, policy alternatives, educational strategies and messages, corporate best practices, and other relevant approaches to promote child passenger safety through increased child restraint system use.
