Pink Taxis allow male escorts

April 6, 2007

The hugely successful but highly controversial exclusively ladies only pink taxi service launched in August 2006 in Moscow continues to thrive amidst strong criticism. Some decry it as a service for lesbians and feminists, whilst others say it is discriminatory.

The fleet of taxis consists of 20 cute pink Daewoo Matiz and Nexias, pictured at the link below, with a complement of 20 female staff drivers.

The service was originally created for women and children only to reduce the number of taxi rates which were prevalent even in the official state run taxi service. Russian newspapers report that the service is now allowing male escorts to use the service as long as they are accompanying female passengers.
