Good news for solo women travellers ! Karnataka State Tourism Development Corp (KSTDC) and Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL) has launched an all-women-run taxi service called Go Pink Cabs on Monday. The project which is being run on an experimental basis with 10 taxis as of now is completely piloted by women drivers.
So apart from Uber, Ola, Karnataka Taxi, MegaCabs and Meru Cabs, women will now be able to book a Go Pink Cabs ride from Kempegowda International Airport Bengaluru.
Services: The service will be functional 24×7 and will be priced at Rs 21.50/km during the day (6am-11.59pm) and Rs 23.50/km at night (12am-6am). Either solo female travellers or a group of women only can avail themselves of the service.
Safety: The women drivers are fluent in several languages, familiar with navigating the city and trained in self-defense. Their vehicles are equipped with safety features such as GPRS tracking and an SOS switch in case of any emergency.
Self sustainability: Apart from providing a safe mode of transport for women , this concept also provides self employment for women and another point is that the women are from the surrounding areas of the airport this making it self-sustainable.
