Student app to make women's travels safer

Thursday, July 25, 2013

A third-year Waterloo electrical engineering student is developing a smartphone app to connect New Delhi women to women-driven taxis.
Sujay Arora, a co-founder of Caboom, grew up in New Delhi, a city where recent public protests have raised awareness about violence against women. Caboom is working on creating a new smartphone app that Arora hopes will make women in India’s largest city safer. The tool will allow female travelers to book the closest women-driven cabs using their smartphone. It also sends information about the taxi and its driver to family and friends before the woman gets into the cab. [Waterloo homepage story]
