Why I have started up a female focused passenger service company


My name is Sophie Denman, I am a 23 year old female who has worked in the passenger transport industry for the last 3 years in Wellington and Christchurch. From my personal experience and passenger feedback, I have identified a need to develop safer transport options for women. To meet this need I have created Sophies Angels and safety is our first concern.


Working in the passenger transport industry as a young female, I have at times been sexually harassed by various passengers. More than a few of my female passengers have told me they have had similar or worse experiences with some drivers. This is why Sophies Angels is focused on having a female driven workforce.


We currently have a small friendly support team with 2 drivers in the field, so bookings will be taken by calling or texting 022 649 1439 (For general queries, please email helpdesk@sophiesangels.org).
