It’s an app called Chariot for Women, a new ridesharing service that only women can use. What a great idea isn’t it? It came across when an Uber driver Michael Pelletz seems to recognize feedbacks among women when they ride passenger vehicles.
And guess what? All the drivers and passengers will be women.
Pelletz said in a phone interview, that the driver and client will have a code in the app after a ride request has been made. When the car arrives, the driver’s code should match the passenger’s code before they can get in the car. One more good thing about the company is that they donates 2 percent of every fare to charity.
The service is also open to pick up kids of any gender under age 13 and anyone that identifies as a woman.
“If they’re trans and identify as a woman, they can drive and ride with us, no problem at all,” Pelletz said.
“We’re doing this because there is such inequality when it comes to security that afflicts driver and rider due to gender,” Pelletz reiterated.
Pelletz also hoping that other rideshare companies follow their footsteps to improve safety among women.
