Pink Ladies

pink_ladies.jpg Pink Ladies is the UK's first women-only private car hire franchise - geared towards women who feel safer taking a taxi driven by a woman.

"Passengers sign up as members, and fares are either pre-paid, paid by credit card or with a 'pink account', which is both convenient for members and safe for drivers.

Booking is done over the phone, and a text message is sent to the customer to let her know the vehicle is approaching, which means she doesn't have to wait outside.

Drivers are trained in self-defense and will wait outside a customer's home after a drop-off to ensure she gets in safely.

How cool is that? [via Springwise, Trendwatching's little sister.
