Rideshare Assaults in Hawaii

Uber and Lyft both operate in the state of Hawaii. Wherever rideshare services are available in Hawaii, there is risk of rideshare-related assault. Assaults vary widely and can include sexual assaults, rape, physical assaults, carjackings, kidnappings and shootings.

Uber and Lyft only provide limited statistics for reports of assaults on their apps, but some nationwide numbers are available. Uber reported that over 9,000 sexual assault complaints were made to the company between 2017 and 2020, while Lyft had over 4,000 between 2017 and 2019. In regard to physical assaults, both companies only chose to publish statistics on fatal physical assaults. Uber reported 39 fatal physical assaults between 2017 and 2020 and Lyft reported 10 fatal physical assaults between 2017 and 2019.
