Indore Airport authorities aim to take steps to ensure safety of women. They plan to introduce a pink taxi service exclusively for women, much like what we have seen in Delhi and Noida.

With the pink taxis, they aim to provide women a safer and hassle free travel environment.

The service will be exclusively available to female passengers during the night time. Another step in the right direction is that they aim to employ only women drivers for these taxis. The taxis will be coloured pink so that they stand out and can be easily identifiable.

The idea for this service came after a private company wanted to run a late night taxi service from the airport to traveller’s residences. The airport authorities then took over the idea and modified it to cater to the immediate needs of women passengers. They have mentioned that as of now, the service is only a late night service but in the future, they hope to expand it into a 24x7 service so that it can benefit all women travellers round the clock.

As of now, the airport has a couple of taxi services that commuters can make use of. Apart from that, users can also make use of cab services such as Uber and Ola, both of which have been the root of such issues in the past. The pink taxi service is a first of its kind in Indore and we hope to see it kick off in a big way.
