Rome taxis offer discounts for solo women

Good news for women traveling alone at night in Rome and Milan

The city of Rome has announced an initiative that will provide 5 Euro discount coupons for women traveling alone in Rome at night. The coupons will be valid towards any taxi trip for females with radiotaxi 3570 between 9:00 PM and 06:00 AM, according to an article today in Il Giornale. The goal of the project is to protect women from aggression and sexual violence in the major cities of Rome and Milan.

The initiative will begin in May and last through September, possibly longer if the city finds additional sponsors to subsidize the cost. Beginning in May, coupons will be made available at Rome nightclubs, universities, and other places of business. Now the question left is, how will we be able to get our hands on them to give some to female tourists in Rome? Stay tuned, we've got our people working on it!
