Pink taxis

Earlier this year, pink taxis started appearing on the streets of Dubai. The Middle East's first ever women-only taxi service was launched to give women peace of mind when they hail cabs – at locations like malls, the airport and Dubai's biggest maternity hospital. The 50 cars are driven by women, and just to make us gals feel right at home, they have pink roofs, girly pink seats and interiors. Plus the drivers are trained in childcare and tourist guide services.

There seems to be a bit of a trend for pink taxis all over the world. Next time you're in Warrington in the north of England, you can contact a women-only taxi service called Pink Ladies. There's also one in Moscow called Pink Taxi (pictured below), and another in Tehran. RM
