Getting into a taxi, and sometimes a ride-hailing car, driven by a male can be an unpredictable experience. While the majority of male drivers are harmless, there is still a sense of unsureness about the whole experience. Call it weird, call it creepy, but right up to now, women have no choice but to get in the car with a total stranger. Thankfully, Carriage for Her is the perfect female-only alternative. 

As its name suggests, Carriage for Her is a ride-hailing service driven by women picking up women passengers. So women can be comfortable and feel safer going from Point A to Point B. It’s a simple yet smart idea. 

Although Carriage for Her is strictly a women-only service, men can come onboard only if they are chaperoned by a lady friend and only the driver allows it. Yes, she has to notify the driver of the male passenger's presence, and the driver has the option to accept or reject the request.

It’s not just the passengers have peace of mind, the business also aims to open up a new income stream for women. The service welcomes women from all walks of life, with a valid driver’s license, to join the service’s network of drivers. The service works on a system known as the Carriage Variable Fare Split System that allows the ladies to earn more commission the more they drive. 

In addition to that, Carriage also offers special incentives for drivers when they refer a new driver into the network. Every successful driver sign-up will allow existing drivers to earn up to 100 per cent commission on their trips. 

If this is not enough to set this app apart from the rest, then here’s one thing that other apps do not offer: an SOS button. Yes, Carriage has an SOS button and emergency contacts software built into the app. The emergency button is available for both passengers and drivers to ensure the security of both sides. This is will also allow the ladies to get help the moment they run into trouble. 

Carriage for Her is available on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. If you're a guy, share this story with your lady friend. If you're a lady, then this is the ride-hailing service to use.
