Meet Chariot, The “Uber” Service That Transports Women Only

A new ride-sharing service called Chariot was announced in Boston. This service differs from Uber and Lyft as it transports only women.

“Driven by women. Exclusively for women” is the motto from Chariot’s website.

Michael Pelletz, the startup founder says he wants to provide reliable service for women. All drivers are women, and their verification is more rigorous than Uber’s. Moreover, every morning the a driver must answer a security question. However, before the ordered cab arrives at the destination, the client receives a “safe word” that the driver must tell when it arrives. In this way, the women’s are sure that they got in the correct car.

The only boys allowed to get into the Chariot cars are the ones who are under the age of 13, but they have to be accompanied by their mothers.

The company may, however, face lawsuits for discrimination based on sex. The US law does not allow employers to refuse to hire someone because of their gender or not to provide services for certain categories of people.

Chariot is expected to launch at the end of this month.
