Chantilly, Va. – A new mode of transportation focused on the safety and empowerment of women is coming to the D.C. Metro area.

They're calling it Safr because that's what it's designed to do, keep women safe by giving them the option to chose the gender of their driver or passenger. The app also offers multiple in-app security features including a 24/7 ride tracking center and a panic button. A local resident, who chose to remain anonymous, had a bad experience with Uber and says these features are critical.

"He pulled into my driveway and put the car in park and as soon as he put the car in park. He jumped over the front seat grabbed me and attempted to sexually assault me. As a woman its just not something we should have to worry about," she said.

Safr is expected to launch in the DMV by the end of September.
