With all the hype and chatter around Uber ride sharing we shouldn’t be surprised different variations on the theme are sprouting up.
The latest operating in Boston is called Chariots for Women.
The service is designed for all female customers and all female drivers. Kids are exempt.
The service is in response to attacks on women by both taxi drivers and Uber drivers in the news of late.
It also boasts an extra layer of security with deeper background checks and code words between driver and passenger.
And 2% of each sale goes to the women’s charity of the passengers’ choice.
Not only doe this provide a service to women it also creates jobs in an industry largely dominated by men.
Sounds perfect doesn’t it?
But isn’t it discriminatory in today’s age to offer a service solely based on gender?
Don’t you hate it when political correctness gets in the way of a good idea?
