The well-being of Bolt users is our top priority and a task we do not take lightly. Therefore, we’re constantly developing our platform and services to help ensure that every Bolt user feels secure and comfortable.
We’re more than happy to introduce you to our new ride-type: Women Only.
The Women Only ride-type allows women to request rides only from women drivers. This ride-type is now available in 12 of our cities in South Africa, including Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Emalahleni, Mbombela, Mthatha, Pietermaritzburg, Thohoyandou, Polokwane, Port Elizabeth, East London and Rustenburg and will continue to be rolled out to other cities.
The “Women Only” ride-type will operate 24/7 every day of the week 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.
We’ll 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 Bolt app.
P.S. If you’re interested in some practical tips that help you feel more comfortable on your Bolt ride, head to our blog post on that topic.
So, whenever you need a ride, be sure to take a Bolt. And, if you haven’t yet, download the app and get going!
