UNITED STATES (WSYR-TV) — Lyft is looking to improve the safety of passengers by adding several new safety features, including a panic button.

The button will be in the app and allow riders to call 911 right through it.

Lyft is also looking to minimize the risk of passengers getting in the wrong vehicle by putting a larger image of the license plate in the app once your ride is booked.
