A pink logo on the cars, and even pink nail polish - it's all part of the look of women-drivers working for Egypt's first women-only taxi service. The Pink Taxi company hires only women drivers and gives rides to only female passengers.

The company was started in an effort to provide a safe taxi service for women in a country with high rates of sexual harassment, said Reem Fawzy, the director of the company

Great news
I am very pleased to read about the introduction of the Pink Taxis Service in Cairo. I hope the service expands to other areas of Egypt. I wish every success to Reem Fawzy and her colourful drivers.
