As of today, you can specifically book a Staxi with a female driver. We’re very proud to be the first online taxi platform to bring this service to Amsterdam! That doesn’t mean that our male drivers aren’t any good. There’s simply a demand for female taxi drivers, as is shown by a survey that De Telegraaf (a prominent Dutch newspaper) recently conducted.
A group of more than 1000 women answered questions about how safe they feel in public. 43% of the respondents indicated that they often don’t feel safe when taking a taxi. The fact that most taxi drivers are men was one of the causes.
Our female drivers confirm this sentiment. Passengers, both ladies and gentlemen, are pleasantly surprised when they see that there is a woman at the wheel of the taxi. They’re often asked for a phone number or business card so that they can call the female driver again the next time they want to travel by taxi.
Of course, one woman can never be of service to everyone all the time. That’s why we are now joining our (female) forces! Our new service ‘Staxi Lady’ is a taxi service by women, for everyone who feels safer or more comfortable with a female taxi driver.
You can only book and pay for a taxi ride with a Staxi Lady online. At the moment, the minimum reservation time is two hours. Still, we expect to be able to take this back to about twenty minutes soon.
