The Saudi Public Transport Authority confirmed that Saudi women who have a regular driver’s license, own a car and fulfill all requirements can register in one of the licensed ride-hailing or transportation companies, and start working without having to specify the gender of the client.

The Transport Authority pointed out that there is no distinction between men and women behind the driver’s wheel, according to a statement published by the authority on its official account on Twitter.

The statement also denied reports circulated on social media about banning women from working in the transportation sector through smart applications, or banning these female drivers from transporting male passengers during their shifts in those companies.
