Sophie and her car

Safe Transport For Women. A female passenger transport service, to help women get safe and comfortable ride home at night.

Sophies Angels is a new, female passenger service which has begun is Wellington New Zealand with our first and only driver, and founder; Sophie Denman.  Our goal is to provide an alternative transport option to female clients who are seeking a safer and more comfortable way to get around. 

 

Sophie has been a driver in the passenger transport industry for over a year and in that time she realised two things:

 

1 – There are women who do not feel safe, or comfortable, or respected, when taking taxis or their alternatives.  This problem is made worse for young women who want to socialise and go out at night.

 

2 – Sophie could not earn a living wage working as she was as a full time driver.  Due fuel costs, taxes, insurance and the cost to maintain her own vehicle, and the companies percentage she was effectively paying the company to drive people from place to place.

 

 

 

This is where Sophies Angels began.  To take Sophie’s own personal experiences and those of her passengers and turn it into a revolution in the transport industry.  A company where the customers feel safe, and the drivers can earn fair pay.  A company that understands why women do not feel safe, and acknowledges it.  Where we strive to remove and reduce the dangers and threats, by first admitting that they are there. 

 

All our vehicles will have live video streaming to our monitoring centre, and this will be recorded so we can investigate complaints, and to deter any misconduct.  Our drivers will all require passenger endorsements and a clean driving record, as well as have the supportive and protective attitude that makes her an Angel.
