Ladies, this one is especially for you because we share your concern for safety while travelling in Delhi. The notoriety of the city as the ‘rape capital’ of India is one of those things that we would definitely like to wish away. We review here a couple of cab services that now ply the roads of Delhi/NCR trying to make travelling a safer experience for single women.
Launched in 2010 as a social entrepreneurship endeavor, Sakha provides cab services run by and for women exclusively. This company trains women from the poorer sections of the city to become taxi drivers. They also provide chauffeurs for hire for a longer duration. To hire a cab with them all you have to do is register online. The only downside to this service is that cabs have to be booked 24 hours in advance.
