Gender-equitable urban transport is the Future !

About our company

Safe public transport for women, children and vulnerable members of the community.

Joanie Fredericks Human Rights Activist decided to do something to contribute towards breaking the legacy of historical gender based violence in South Africa.
Aware of the growing travel risks that women, children and the elderly face she came up with the idea of not only providing safe transport but at the same time creating training and job opportunities within the community hub.

Joanie endeavours to empower by fearlessly challenging social taboos and identifying opportunities for self improvement and financial independence.

* Many, many people who believe in me personally and my dreams, especially that I will make it.

Welcome message from the Founder Welcome

Three years ago when I started Ladies Own Transport Services, I always new that I needed to do something about the lack of safe transport for women. Little did I know it was going to be the near rape of a close friend that catapulted me into the decision to start this initiative, immediately and without resources.

In just one month since the launch of the Rideshare for Women initiative, we have achieved amazing successes. This page would be too small to mention them all.

To all of you out there, who send kind words of encouragement and support, this is OUR JOURNEY TOGETHER.

This initiative has been launched for the safety of all of us who ever wondered if we would arrive alive at our destination.

Thank you for the support, thank you very much for seeing what I see, a new way of doing old things better.

We are not in competition with taxis, ubers, Bolts or any other operator. We are creating Our Own Unique Space that cares more about the safety of our clients and drivers than profits. We are focused purely in providing females, children and vulnerable people the right to choose their transport. There is room for us all and I hope that as service providers we will work alongside each other in the service of our people.

Finally, as women we called out for years for safer transport. What we do now is to take charge over our own bodies, our own safety while traveling.

Thank you...

Joanie Fredericks
