Safr Ride-Hailing App

Safr is a ride-hailing app like Uber or Lyft. Safr?s goal is to provide safe transportation and job opportunities for women everywhere. The app has just now launched in Boston but as yet does not offer the number of drivers as other ride-hailing apps like Uber and Lyft. Just before the planned launch, Safr was facing legal challenges on the basis of discrimination against male passengers and drivers. With the launch of the app, it is clear passengers can choose a preference for the gender of the driver. The app also features prominent safety features that other ride-hailing apps do not.

Safr Ride-Hailing App

Who can use this option?

Anyone who is able to ride in a standard car or SUV can use this service. Safr serves all types of destinations, both medical and non-medical. You do need a smartphone (preferred) or Internet-connected tablet with the Safr app installed and a credit card on file. Both very short and long-distance journeys are available, depending on driver availability.

How much does it cost?

Fares are calculated by adding a base fare to rates for time and distance. So costs vary depending on how far you travel and how long your trip takes.

When is this option available?

Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including weekends and holidays, depending on driver availability.

How far ahead do you need to plan?

No advance planning required

What accommodations are available?

An escort/companion is permitted to travel with the passenger up to the number of passengers allowed in the car. Like other ride-hailing apps, few (if any) Safr vehicles are wheelchair accessible. Drivers are expected to accommodate riders who use walkers, canes, folding wheelchairs, and other assistive devices to the extent possible. You can ask the driver for help getting over a curb, getting into and out of the vehicle, and with storing packages or folding walkers in the trunk, but whether help is offered is up to the driver's discretion. It's entirely up to the driver whether or not to allow a passenger?s personal pet in the vehicle. It is recommended that you bring a crate or towel with you to protect the seat and that you call your driver right after your request is accepted to confirm that it's okay to bring your pet. It is Safr?s policy that service animals are always accepted.
