Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Taxi Rosa made their official debut Thursday, offering their women-only taxi service in Playa del Carmen.
Operated by taxi union Lázaro Cárdenas del Río, the women in white shirts and pink scarves have created a taxi service exclusively for women. Jesús Martín Medina, secretary general of the taxi union, said they intend to promote gender equality by providing this new service. It is also a way to provide a safe option for female passengers.
To order a Taxi Rosa, president María Del Carmen Loría says patrons can order a Taxi Rosa on the phone or via their WhatsApp taxi service. Another way to get a Taxi Rosa is to download the free Andriod or iOS app Taxi Amigo PDC.
There are currently 27 Taxi Rosa cars servicing women throughout Playa del Carmen, a service Martín Medina says, they hope will grow to 50 taxis by the end of the year.
