ChaufHer is a new ride-hailing platform designed by and for women only is planning to soon start up in Johannesburg and Cape Town. The platform will feature only women drivers and cater to women customers only to ensure a feeling of safety.
On their website, ChaufHer explains why they have created this service. “Our mission is to provide a safe environment for women to get out there and live their best lives without having to worry about how they will get around. Every aspect of the ChaufHer experience places safety at its heart.”
“When women get together and support each other anything is possible. We created ChaufHer to be truly by women, for women, so you know that someone you can trust is picking you up.”
There have been a number of reports of sexual harassment and abuse against male Uber and Taxify drivers in South Africa, causing many women to feel unsafe using these services.
ChaufHer rides are designed to ensure the safety and comfort of each passenger. Professional female drivers go through a comprehensive vetting process. Passengers also go through a vetting process when they register to ensure the drivers safety. There will be an SOS button feature that both drivers and passengers can use if they feel uncomfortable or unsafe during their trip. The service also provides an option for a car with a child booster seat for passengers travelling with little ones.
