MTM Partners with Safr to Provide Safety-Focused On-Demand Transportation
Focused on providing a top-notch transportation experience for our most vulnerable members, MTM is pleased to announce that we have partnered with Safr, a unique ridesharing platform built specifically with the needs of women in mind. Safr’s non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) model offers meticulous and reliable support to vulnerable members who may not be comfortable riding with traditional ridesharing services, like women who have experienced a history of abuse, children, and older adults. Relying on a network of highly vetted drivers and in-ride security features, Safr offers peace of mind to passengers. MTM and Safr’s partnership will kick off in Michigan, with expansion to additional markets nationwide forthcoming.
“Safr specializes in providing unmatched customer service and safety, which is a focus that MTM is committed to ensuring for our members nationwide,” said MTM’s President and CEO Alaina Maciá. “The addition of Safr to our network provides another on-demand option for our most vulnerable members, ensuring their needs and comfort are prioritized during every ride.”
“Safr is a rideshare company focused on women safety and empowerment, and is redefining the ridesharing experience,” added Safr CEO Syed Gilani. “Created with the needs of women in mind, our goal is to provide safe transportation and job opportunities for women everywhere. Our safety features and thoroughly vetted drivers will ensure MTM’s passengers are in safe hands as we focus on providing the highest level of safety, security, and transparency possible to every passenger during every trip.”
Founded in 2017, Safr currently serves passengers across the United States. The Safr platform combines extra elements of safety with the ease of use passengers are accustomed to experiencing when using traditional ridesharing apps. Safety features like an SOS function, 24/7 real-time monitoring to ensure the vehicle never deviates from the suggested route, and a unique driver/rider color matching and verification system ensure both Safr drivers and their passengers always feel comfortable and safe.
Safr also relies on careful vetting and training of drivers to ensure best-in-class service. Drivers undergo comprehensive background checks, giving riders peace of mind that they are in safe hands. Drivers also complete bystander awareness and ride safety training sessions, ensuring they are equipped with resources and techniques to ensure passenger and community safety.
“As a woman-owned organization, MTM is committed to ensuring our members feel safe when using non-traditional transportation providers, like ridesharing services,” Maciá said. “Safr operates very similarly to MTM, with innovation, the member experience, and driver training at the forefront of their minds. They have developed a community of drivers who always have their riders’ best interests at heart, and we look forward to partnering to provide a high quality transportation service to our members in Michigan and beyond.”
Safr is a new ridesharing service focused on the safety and empowerment of women.
