Lyft is adding new safety features for riders and drivers.

People can now access 911 via the app.

The new features come in the wake of a lawsuit filed by 14 women alleging sexual assault or rape by Lyft drivers.

Other smart features include safety messages from Lyft to check-in with riders, and an option to get emergency assistance.
