We are in exigent need to travel however we cannot go by train in fear of being harrassed. We have no mahram (related male) to travel with us. Is it permissible for us to drive on our own?

Yes, you can drive in order to fulfil your needs with full hijab provided there is no mixing with non-mahram. Driving in itself is makrooh (undesirable) for women, but in the case mentioned above it is allowable only as much as necessary.
