All About Shebah

 

At Shebah, our purpose is simple: 

To help create a safer world for women and their children.

This is why we do what we do.

Shebah is Australia’s leading all-women rideshare service, providing safe transport and economic freedom to women across the country.

Established in 2017 by Founder and CEO Georgina McEncroe, Shebah aims to bridge the gap in transport inequality, an obstacle preventing women from reaching their full potential.

Shebah not only allows women to travel with confidence, but provides an opportunity for women to generate their own income on their schedule.

Here at Shebah we want women to focus on where they need to go, without apprehension of how they're going to get there.

 

Principles

Shebah's principles

The safety of women and their children is the primary objective of Shebah. We endeavour to provide the safest platform possible for our riders and drivers.

We recognise that economic empowerment is paramount to the independence and well-being of women. Shebah drivers keep 85% of the fare so they can generate a real income.

Shebah is transparent and honest; we will always be open about what happens in our community.

Diversity is celebrated at Shebah, we welcome people from all cultures and demographics.

 

George

Shebah's Founder & CEO

George McEncroe began her career in media and comedy, but has transcended into a fierce business leader, entrepreneur and mobility innovator.

George was looking for flexible work to meet her needs as a single mother of 4 children. She considered Uber driving but felt uneasy about her safety, and recognised that a lot of women avoided the rideshare industry for similar reasons.

Like many mothers, she felt anxious about the wellbeing of her teenage daughter Bridgette travelling in Ubers late at night. 

It was for these reasons and more that Shebah was born.

Ultimately George is driven by her determination to help women live a safe and confident life. The purpose of Shebah is to achieve this shared vision.

Louise inspires me every day with her positive attitude, beautiful smile and the support & love she gives to other families going through the same journey.

Her words in one of the speeches are stuck with me "I want our young people to know that they matter, that they belong. So don't be afraid. You hear me, young people? Don't be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourself with a good education. Then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise. Lead by example with hope; never fear."
