In a growing world of competition, where men and women are standing on equal bars, the safety of women is still an unresolved issue. But this Independence Day, the Chandigarh Tricity has a gift for the women.
A city startup, Startup Future Fiacre Pvt. Ltd has announced a women-friendly e-cab service which shall begin from August 15. The main objective behind this service besides offering cab facility to all is to provide a safe facility exclusively for women. However, the cabs will be available to use for the general public too!
The provision of the cab facility for couples and other people shall range in the time slot between 9 am to 6 pm. After 6 pm, this service shall work for women with ‘women drivers’ on the wheels till 10 pm. Female drivers will be provided with more commissions than other drivers.
Rajat Luthra, Director Operations, Future Fiacre Pvt. Ltd., addressed the media and highlighted the features of this new idea. This cab service shall not only be cheap to travel but also provide better employment opportunities to the drivers. In the world of high-end technology, the cabs shall be well equipped with high GPS system and extra security for women traveling at late hours.
Along with getting a great response from other Chandigarh and Tricity residents, this idea has been supported by Sukhjeet, a 30-year-old woman from Zirakpur who has registered herself to be a female driver.
The cab services will act as a motivation for women and will further be introduced in five more cities after Chandigarh- namely New Delhi, Mumbai, Surat, and Kota. The Company holds a plan to launch this abroad in places like Melbourne and Adelaide, Australia.
“If the male strata of the society begin to owe such a responsible outlook towards the females, any and every city shall be a safe place.”
