Women-only ride share service coming to San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A new ride sharing service is coming to the streets of San Diego County and it's different from all the rest.

See Jane Go is an all-female ride share company with only women drivers and passengers.

The company was the brain child of an Orange County teenager looking for a safer way to ride share. Savannah Jordan was tired of having to get into vehicles with random men behind the wheel.

“Getting into the back of a ride share car with a male driver you don't know could be somewhat dangerous,” she said.

So, Savannah pitched the idea of the all-female ride share service to her father, William Jordan, an Orange County investment expert.

Over the summer, See Jane Go launched in Orange County. Riders use a smart phone app to locate a driver, similar to Uber or Lyft services.

“So, it's not just getting from point A to point B, but it's like doing it with a girlfriend instead of an unknown, random person,” said William Jordan.

The company is already recruiting drivers in the San Diego area. They all get background checks and vehicle inspections in advance.

Single mother Breanne Morrow drives for See Jane Go during the day, while her kids are at school.

“It's a really good option for me. I love being part of something that empowers women to get out there and earn extra income and also be able to ride in comfort and safety,” Morrow said.

Male passengers are allowed to ride with See Jane Go, as long as they are with a woman who can vouch for them.

The service is expected to launch in San Diego in the beginning of 2017.
