New limo service to airport…for women

A new female limousine service catering to female passengers at the airport is generating some controversy.

Longtime airport driver Crissy McDow told CBC she started Lady Drive-Her last week because some female passengers feel more comfortable with a female driver. She started the service after a taxi driver was acquitted of sexually assaulting a drunk passenger.

Some male limo drivers have expressed concern the new service is discriminatory and exploits fear among some women. McDow says she’s just meeting a need and expanding her business.
