Safr Chosen as Women’s National Football Conference (WNFC)’s Rideshare of Choice

30 July 2020

Safr, the leading ridesharing service dedicated to the safety and empowerment of women, has been named the rideshare of choice by the Women’s National Football Conference, a leading Dallas-based association bringing professional women's tackle football to a global audience.

“Safr is proud to partner with Women’s National Football Conference (WNFC), an outstanding women’s football league comprised of 20 teams spanning 17 states and over a thousand women and coaches,” said Syed Gilani, CEO of Safr. “This continues to build upon our foundational core values and our other strategic partnerships like the NFL Alumni Association and other impactful organizations focused on this mission. As a rideshare dedicated to the safety and empowerment of women, Safr is honored to be the rideshare of choice for WNFC’s membership, whose inspiring and progressive approach to women’s sports perfectly aligns with Safr’s mission in providing safe, accessible transportation to women around the world.”

Safr is a new kind of rideshare that focuses on the safety of women and their families. The Safr app is easy to use and free to download for iPhone here: and for Android here:

“Women have historically been left behind when it comes to sports; the time has never been better to improve opportunities for women and create positive change,” stated Odessa Jenkins, CEO and Founder of the Women’s National Football Conference and former NFL coaching intern. “We are proud that the WNFC is getting recognized as a pro counterpart in professional football, something that will change the way women are viewed around the world. Women should be able to play tackle football professionally, and take a rideshare without fear of being harassed. Safr is the perfect partner in providing reliable transportation for WNFC’s players, coaches and their families, as well as women everywhere.”

Safr offers three main features that distinguish the brand: gender preference, identification color matching, and trusted drivers. Safr offers drivers and riders alike a gender preference, allowing them to select the rider’s and driver’s gender. The identification color match system ensures drivers and riders are not getting into the wrong vehicle. Safr conducts extensive driver background checks; its’ trusted driver option allows a rider to choose the same driver over and over. Safr drivers comprise a dedicated team who meet in person on a monthly basis, providing a sense of community for drivers. Safr is dedicated to providing women a safer alternative to other rideshare companies, where safety has simply not been a priority.

Over 36% of Americans have used a rideshare service, but reports have shown that most rideshares do not vet for safety. Safr is disrupting the troubled rideshare industry with a solution for both riders and drivers. On a global level, the firm is addressing the world-wide issue of inequality, particularly for women but also underserved groups like families, the elderly and the LGBTQ+ communities around the world. On a practical level, Safr is offering a better, safer and more reliable rideshare with benefits other rideshares do not offer.

The partnership between Safr and WNFC underscores the organizations’ aligned goals of women’s empowerment and opportunity.
