Shebah is a driving service founded by women, operated by women drivers and designed for women passengers. Enjoy the safety and certainty of being part of an all-female network.
George McEncroe, a single mum of four, founded Shebah when she realised her daughter was concerned about her safety on the way home at night.
Safety and security for all women is important to Women’s Housing Ltd and Shebah agrees. Shebah’s all-female drivers have undertaken extensive background searches and safety checks to create a safe passage. Safety is a priority!
More good news is …whenever you roll with Shebah you will be making a difference! Shebah will donate 1% of all fares to charity. Women’s Housing Ltd is proud to be one of those charities.
