With security in decline, transportation options such as Laudrive are becoming increasingly popular. It's an app similar to Uber and Cabify, which offers a taxi service with the difference of being that it's only for women and has women at the wheel.
This is an innovative transportation option for women who have stopped trusting services such as Uber or Cabify. In the words of Luis Fernando Montes de Oca, general director of Laudrive, their offer is: "security and confidence... that confidence that is created in a car when two women go together."
Jorge de la Hoz, Laudrive's director of operations, said that on a map of Mexico City they see "all the requests they have asked for over these days... We have about 80, 100 trips a day... We had 10, 15 trips a day at the start... The demand increased by 600 percent in users."
A little more than seven months ago, Laudrive had 200 drivers, a number that has risen to 880, given the high demand for the service. Is it easy to be a driver? Yes, as long as you pass psychometric and toxicological exams, present official identification, driver's license and a letter of no criminal record.
