The number of women joining the workforce in Saudi Arabia is increasing day by day and with that comes the need for things that can help ease their mission, Wusool is one of those things!
Wusool is a transport system dedicated to women only, it helps more than 60,000 Saudi women get to and from work safe and sound.
Not only does the system helps in reducing the cost of transportation to women working in the private sector, it also provides a subsidized travel via the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF), which offers a safe commute for them through partnerships with taxi companies via licensed apps.
In providing such a safe, affordable and secure daily commute system, the Kingdom hopes to witness a rise in the number of women joining the workforce.
The system depends on women enrolling themselves in the program, and the employee “should be registered for less than 36 months under the General Organization for Social Insurance (GOSI) and her monthly salary should not exceed SR8,000 ($2,132).”
For all the women working in the private sector, you can register for the Wusool program through this link.
