LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Lyft is adding new safety features amid sexual assault concerns.

The company will now allow 911 calls through their app.

All Lyft drivers will be required to complete a mandatory community safety education starting in the fall.

The changes come following last week’s news that 14 women are suing the company alleging they were sexually assaulted or raped by their Lyft driver between 2018 and 2019.
