Women in Saudi Arabia can now become taxi drivers

Women in Saudi Arabia can now apply to become taxi drivers.

This comes less than four years after Saudi women were given the right to drive.

Artist Latifah Al-Shalhoub told Arab News: “As a female, I always had an issue with this topic. I never felt comfortable riding in a taxi on my own with a male driver. At least with Uber and Careem you get some information about the driver before you get in.”

Since women were given the right to drive in 2018, many jobs in transport such as trains and aeroplanes have been in open to them.
