Ride-sharing service, Shebah, meant for women and children to use as an alternative to Uber and other similar ride-sharing apps, has announced that it is set to launch in Adelaide, Australia.
Shebah, claims its fleet of all-female drivers is designed to help passengers feel safer. Giovanna Henderson has been driving for the ride-sharing service for over a year, but she says there are times she has felt unsafe.
“It can be quite risky and a bit frightening, depending on who you’re picking up or what areas you’re going into,” Ms Henderson said. She has now signed up to be one of South Australia’s first drivers for Shebah.
Shebah Founder Georgina McEnroe said the ride-sharing service is for women, by women.
“If you’ve had too much to drink perhaps, or you’re in a new part of town or you’re not with a fella, or you just want to travel with a lady,” she told 9NEWS.
All accredited Shebah drivers are female and have undergone extensive background checks.
And while the service caters for women and girls, boys can also hitch a ride, if they are accompanied by a female guardian.
