Shebah, a ride sharing app that only accepts female drivers and customers will be available in Queensland from February 2017. More than 245 drivers have already signed up to be drivers in their new location.
Founder and company director Georgina McEncroe says she came up with the idea after noticing how intimidated female Uber drivers can when picking up male passengers.
"I had seen another woman about my age who decided to drive, she was pulled up outside a pub and three boozed up young fellas [were waiting] and I saw the look on her face,” she told 612 ABC Brisbane's Rebecca Levingston.
"We realised there were a lot of women who wanted to be driven by women, or female drivers who were anxious about driving men."
The app will be finalized at the end of January and go live from February 1. It’s free to download and will be available on Apple and Android devices.
