is a new company that has found a way to make women feel safer catching a cab while helping women join a male dominated industry. Starting September 16 (my bday btw) women will be able to use a cab service specifically designed for us! She rides will take request through an app which will ask Potential riders if there’s a woman in their party. If not, they’ll be automatically redirected to other car services! ”SheTaxi will employ a 100 percent female staff of drivers, which should go a long way to bolstering the amount of women car service drivers in New York. According to city data, women account for 5 percent of car service drivers, and they only make up about 1 percent of yellow cab drivers.” The company was founded by Stella Mateo, the wife of New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers founder Fernando Mateo. Stella plans to expand to other cities but for now She Rides is just in New York, Westchester County and Long Island.
