Those of you who have had to endure those other taxis (I won't mention any names) might have some difficulty believing that this is real - but those of us who have seen the wonderful "girly taxis" know that, thankfully, it is true.
Cabs for Women is a metered taxi service created for women by women.
All the elements that seem like impossible dreams when you are enduring a ride in those other taxis (I still won't mention any names) are guaranteed with Cabs for Women.
They're safe, roadworthy and have roadside backup - and GPS tracking systems.
All the drivers are female and though it is aimed at women, men are welcome to enjoy the service as well.
But that's not all. For a list of all the benefits check out www.cabsforwomen.co.za.
It is thanks to Marian Woolf, creator of Cabs for Women, that safe public transport is no longer something that we will get to enjoy only once the 2010 soccer balls have been inflated.
It's a first in SA. For bookings call 0861-777-778. Mini-skirts are more than welcome. - Keitumetse Segoai
