For many women, carpooling can raise concerns about security, and although Saafiri has a number of safety features that create a secure and trusted community, it may happen that some women still don't feel comfortable sharing a ride with a man they don't know. That's why Saafiri created Ladies Only, to allow members to plan a ride where the driver and all passengers are women. The feature is rarely used however, and it's usually only ever used when a female member uses Saafiri for the first time. Full profiles, with a photo, mini-bio, preferences, verified contact details and ratings left by other members, are much more powerful in creating trust between members, regardless of gender. In fact, 99.4% of rides on Saafiri are offered to both men and women.
Finding a ride
If you're a female passenger looking for a ride and you'd prefer to travel with a female driver, just log in and look for rides on the route you want to travel. You can then select the Ladies Only filter (only visible for members who are logged in). You'll then see all the Ladies Only rides offered by female drivers.
Offering a ride
If you're a female driver with empty seats, you can offer a ride for female members only - your ride will then only be available to women. You can see on the ride if it's Ladies Only.
