Shebah, an Australian ride-sharing service for women and by women, is expanding on its first anniversary.
Founded by George McEncroe, a comedian, mother, and former ABC breakfast host, last year on International Women’s Day, Shebah has been operational in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, The Gold Coast, Geelong, Bendigo, Ballarat, and Sunshine Coast so far.

George was driven to set up the firm after listening to the horrible stories she heard about experiences with Uber drivers from her 19-year-old daughter and her friends.
