Women’s Safety and Security: A Public Transport Priority

This compendium assembles voices from the transport sector on the critical issue of safety for women in public transport and transport more generally. Surveys show that most women who use public transport feel exposed to physical or verbal aggression, sexual harassment and other forms of violence or unwelcome behavior, leading to personal stress and physical harm. As women rely on public transport for access to employment, education and other public services, making it hard for them to be mobile also reinforces inequality.
