A cab service by the women, for the women and of the women
The issue of women's safety in Delhi is one that has been plaguing the city for a really long time. Now, women are taking matters into their own hands by offering female passengers from IGI T3, rides in their women-driven cabs.
The launch of this all-women cab service is perhaps the safest bet for women. From Terminal 3 of IGI airport, any female passenger deboarding a flight can make use of this service. Here's all you need to know about the new fleet of women driven cabs from IGI Terminal 3.
What's the update?
In Delhi, the issue of women's safety always requires attention. This women-run cab service for travelling women is a step in the right direction. Several other tier 1 and 2 cities have already begun implementing such a cab system and we're glad to see something similar in Delhi.
As of now, this fleet of cabs is limited to just 20 cars. However, Sakha Consulting Wings (the brains behind the organization) have stated that they will expand on this very soon, depending on the demand and usage of the facility. At any rate, we are expecting this to be a huge success.
You can even use the cabs on a day to day basis. Just rent a car for either 4 or 8 hours and you've got your very own personal chauffeur. In fact, you can also request cabs for intercity travels, all of which are completely safe.
The service first began in Delhi on January 10, 2020. Prospective users should note that the cabs are stationed outside, at the pillars of T3 and can usually be found around pillar number 16, at Arrivals. The best part is that in order to book a cab, you've got two options- to book it immediately or just pre-book it from their website.
The service has already been implemented in Jaipur and Kolkata and the organization also has plans to kick off a cab service for women in Indore. The services they offer are certainly groundbreaking, to say the least, as they ensure a safe commuting experience for women.
Slowly and steadily, Delhi is becoming a better place for women, at least when it comes to commuting. With the free rides in DTC and metros and several other women-only facilities, the authorities seem to be taking note of what is going wrong in society. The women-only cab service is certainly the need of the hour.
