By the end of 2019, Women on Wheels was launched in Karachi that aimed to teach women how to drives bikes. This was a very successful program and a number of women applied a and learned how to drive a bike.
With the help of this program, the traffic police in Karachi Clifton branch has started issuing driving license for biking women. This will help them smooth mobility and an alternative means of transport as well.
One of the girls, Ramsha, got her motorbike license and says that she can drive a car and a bike both with the help of this license. She also advices women to learn to drive a bike.
Another woman stated that the provision of license will not let her rely on outdoor transport like rickshaw, buses or any other ride-hailing apps to travel within the city.
Madiha, who is a mother of two kids, got her license for the sake of her daughters and was quite concerned about the harassment female bikers have to face. However, she said there should be some rules in order to tackle such situations.
Are you a female biker? Did you get your license yet?
