With March in full swing, one of the Munich’s most anticipated initiatives have finally launched: subsidized night-time taxis for women, AKA ‘Frauen-Nacht-Taxis’.

That’s right, in case you missed the news: from March 1st onwards, all women in Munich are eligible for 5 euro taxi vouchers to be used on night time taxis to a residential address.

This new ‘Frauen-Nacht-Taxis’ initiative was first confirmed in November, and will be part of a one year trial to subsidize safe rides home for women in the city.

How the Frauen-Nacht-Taxis Work

  • All women aged 16+ (including those who identify as trans, divers, or non-binary) are eligible to pick up 3 Frauen-Nacht-Taxi vouchers at a time with a value of 5 euros each from a variety of locations around Munich, including Bürgerbüros, Sozialbürgerhäusern, the Gleichstellungsstelle and the Rathaus (more info here)
  • The vouchers can be used one at a time for all taxi rides from 10pm-6am beginning in Munich, and with a final destination of a residential address. NOTE: Rides do not need to end in Munich, but they must be to a home address rather than to a restaurant, club, or bar
  • Using these vouchers appears to be straightforward – you simply give the voucher to your driver, who will immediately remove 5 euros from your final bill
  • Vouchers are to be redeemed only by women travelling alone, or in a group with other women. Rides including men are not eligible. Click here to learn more from the FAQ (in German)
