See Jane Go is a new ride-hailing service aimed at women which went live yesterday. Women are reportedly uncomfortable using the bigger ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft both as drivers and passengers. Many of them don't feel safe, which is where See Jane Go and SafeHer (a service to launch this fall in Boston) come in. The service is available to all persons who identify as women, and men are allowed to use it, as long as they're accompanied by a woman. While the service is currently limited to Orange County, CA, the company plans to expand nationwide in the coming months.
