NYC women can demand for a woman taxi driver soon

The service will start by next week through a new livery service and it will be named as SheTaxis—SheRides. The officials have announced the launch date of the service as Sept. 16. The service would be based on an app and the potential riders would confirm if there are any women in the party.
