Kuwaiti entrepreneur Bedoor Al-Mutairi has launched the country’s first women-only taxi service, it has been reported.

The bright pink taxis cabs, which are driven by women for female customers only, offer women a secure mode of transport, she told the Kuwait Times.

The business, called Eve Taxis, follows in the footsteps of other successful women-only firms in the UAE, Lebanon, Syria, Iran and Bangladesh.

Al-Mutairi was helped by the Kuwait Small Projects Development Company, a governmental body of the Kuwait Investment Authority (KIA), to start-up her business, she told the paper.

The taxis service will operate from 8am to 8pm, Al-Mutairi told the paper. All cabs will be fitted with a GPS system and the female drivers all have a good local knowledge.

Prices will be set by the Interior Ministry.
