Kejriwal concerned over women's safety in cab sharing

December 07 2017

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday expressed concern over the safety of women travelling in shared cabs in the city.


Kejriwal was responding to a media report that the 'City Taxi Scheme 2017' would not allow ride sharing as cab sharing doesn't come under any legal framework.


Ride sharing has become a popular mode of travel where a passenger can share his ride with anyone while travelling in taxis of app-based cab aggregators.


Kejriwal tweeted: "I agree that ride sharing is a good idea... Our concern is women safety." He added that sharing a ride with strangers may not be safe for women.
