The Solution
With a women-only taxi service and women cab organisation, Taxshe is creating jobs and enabling safe transport for women and children while challenging stereotypes and perceptions. The women drivers, who receive extensive training for 6-8 months, earn Rs. 10,000 – Rs. 60,000 per month, with the opportunity to own their own vehicle within a couple of years. Apart from providing driver and cab services to women, children and senior citizens, Taxshe also provides school pick-up drives on annual contracts.
