Men, step aside please: Woman-only taxis may launch in Bangkok

[Coconuts BKK]Assanatai Rattanadilok na Phuket, the Deputy Director of Department of Land Transport, said recently that plans to launch a class of Bangkok taxis that will only accept  female passengers is still in progress.

The department is studying three main subjects for the lady taxi project: the qualification of the drivers; how locals will be able to identify lady taxis; and the fare, which will be slightly higher than regular taxis.

The department expects to send the project to the transport minister by the end of this year for his final approval.

Private taxis for women have already been launched in Chiang Mai with a THB150 starting rate, Khaosod reported.
