Our Corporate Partners like See Jane Go are truly making a difference in the lives of our clients, by partnering with us and helping to eradicate the obstacle of transportation. Below is a snippet from GirlTalkHQ.com's article 'The Rise Of Female Ride-Sharing Services Is A Wake Up Call About Women’s Safety In Public Spaces' about See Jane Go:
... Not only are they in the business of "transformation", as opposed to just transportation like other services, Kimberly says 2% of the company's revenue will go towards charities that support female empowerment. In January 2017 they announced a partnership with Laura's House, the only state-approved comprehensive domestic violence agency in South Orange County, according to a press release.
"We surveyed our entire female driver base to see which causes resonated with them and Laura’s House emerged as the clear choice for a non-profit alliance. One of the biggest safety issues that women can face is from their spouse or lover through domestic violence. At See Jane Go we are working to help women access the things they need for freedom, safety and empowerment, partnering with Laura’s house for our charitable giving is a powerful way to stay true to that promise,” said the co-founder William Jordan.
They will offer free rides to women who are part of Laura’s House, and use their revenue as a means to absorb the costs. It is partnerships like this that fundamentally address the issue of women’s safety in public, acknowledging that an unsafe cab ride is often the tip of the iceberg of other deeper, societal issues relating to gender violence.
With SafeHer on the East Coast, and See Jane Go on the West Coast with plans to expand, what we hope to see is major growth in the market, where emerging companies like these put the dominant companies like Uber and Lyft on notice that if they aren’t willing to address the fundamental problems within their own ranks, women will go elsewhere with their consumer dollars.
