Female commuters are suffering from a huge transportation crisis.
Roshni Rides recognizes that women in Karachi are 4 times less mobile than men leading to a decrease in independence and job participation.
We believe we can close this gap by formalizing the current pick & drop system through our digital platform.
We are working with corporations & universities to bring a more mobile Karachi to women.
