The safety of women traveling has recently become the main topic of discussion in the Indian media. To ensure a safe and relaxed trip for female travelers, the State Tourism Development Corporation of Karnataka opened a fleet of ten “women only” taxis in collaboration with Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL). Since Bangalore’s airport is at a considerable distance from the city, the service is expected to be especially useful for women at night. Pink taxis will deliver passengers from the airport 24 hours a day. The cabs will be equipped with GPRS surveillance and an SOS emergency button. Female drivers are hired from areas close to the airport. As an additional security measure, female drivers are trained in self-defense, and also speak several languages.
