Female and non-binary Uber drivers are now able to refuse trips from male passengers in Australia under the launch of the new Women Rider Preference.

Western Weekender reports that the new feature will enable female and non-binary drivers to only accept rides from women, however, they can turn the preference on and off.

Director of Driver and Marketplace for Uber Australia Emma Foley said the new feature is intended to make female and non-binary drivers feel safe, especially when working in the evening.

The in-app feature has already been implemented in Latin America, where 15 million trips have been undertaken with a 40 per cent increase in active female drivers in Mexico since its launch, in November 2020.

GOOD! Drunk men are almost as obnoxious as sober men on the pull.
