Women and Ride-Hailing

How can emerging digital transportation models improve women’s economic participation and mobility? Starting with Driving Toward Equality, the first global report on women and ride-hailing, IFC has built a portfolio of research and advisory services exploring how ride-hailing firms can increase representation of women drivers and better serve women riders. Since, new country-specific reports with global partners and deep-dives into emerging topics, such as women-only transport, continue to move forward the debate on how ride-hailing can support women’s ability to work and move freely.
