Shebah - Australia’s first and all-women rideshare service getting women & children safely to where they need to go across Wollongong!

Location: Across Wollongong!
Phone: 0410 508 460   Mobile: 0410 508 460
Ages: Women & children   Days / Hours: Everyday via our Advanced Bookings system
Shebah is a company for women driven by women. We're always about keeping you and your little ones safe when getting around any day of the week (we also provide baby boosters). Whether you’re riding or driving in a Shebah, you can be assured of less stress and more peace of mind – always. Catching a Shebah means sitting in the front seat of the car without feeling vulnerable, no longer feeling limited by the time of day, knowing that your little one is in safe hands when you can’t drop them off and so much more. Get in the Driver's Seat and come work for Shebah!
