Bolt has launched a ‘Women Only’ feature to ensure the safety of both female passengers and drivers.

“The Women Only ride-type allows women to request rides only from women drivers. This ride-type is now available in 8 of our cities in South Africa, including Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Emalahleni, Mbombela, Mthatha, East London and Rustenburg and will continue to be rolled out to other cities.

The “Women Only” ride-type will operate exclusively between the hours of 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily to make sure that women drivers and passengers can get around safely and in a way that’s most comfortable for them. The ride fares of the Women Only Bolt ride-type are identical to the ride fares of a regular Bolt ride.

The company will continue to roll out this option to more cities across South Africa as part of our commitment to ensuring the safety of everyone who uses the app.”
