"Iran will launch a women-only taxi company in Tehran aimed at women who feel uncomfortable riding in close proximity with members of the opposite sex, a newspaper reported Saturday.
"The Ladies' Safe Trips" taxi company, due to open for business in the next few weeks, will be the first such private sector firm in the capital. Similar taxi lines have been operating in some provincial cities for several years. The company will only employ female drivers who will wear uniforms and must be married, the Tehran-e Emrouz newspaper said." Reuters Link to Article (last visited 12-13-06 NVS)
