Just Her Rideshare launches app in North and South Carolina

Just Her Rideshare is a Charlotte-based start-up that has launched in nearly 10 markets in North and South Carolina with its new app.

As reported in Charlotte Inno (subscription required), the Just Her Rideshare mobile app includes an SOS button to make it easy to notify police or an emergency contact, a track-my-ride feature, and personal preferences such as choosing the type of music and temperature riders want or if they would like a chatty or quiet driver.

Founder Kimberly Evans told Charlotte Inno she was particularly impacted by the story of Samantha Josephson, a University of South Carolina student who was kidnapped and murdered in 2019 when she hopped into what she thought was an Uber ride share she had ordered.

On its website, Just Her Rideshare touts its benefits this way: “If you want a comfortable, clean, safe, and relaxing ride, we’re here to give you just that. And if you want to build community with us in a safe work environment with flexible hours and great pay, then we’re here for you.”
