Campaign to improve women's safety in public transport

INTERNATIONAL

Public transport is, sometimes, the only way for women to have access to education, employment or even health care.

Public transport is, sometimes, the only way for women to have access to education, employment or even health care.

For this reason, UCLG is collaborating with the International Union of Public Transport (UITP) and the World Bank to reinforce the effective implementation of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 (gender equality) together with SDG 1 (sustainable and resilient cities) at local and regional level. In order to promote and give greater visibility to safety in cities for women in the use of urban public transport, we have produced a series of materials that aim to be a call to action to facilitate women's safe access to public transport and to raise awareness on the positive impact on gender equality that this action has in society.

In these videos, local and regional governments, as the closest level of government to the people, showcase the support for a safe public transport for all under the theme "Public transport for me. Public transport for you, public transport for all".

These messages will be presented in a global campaign on public transport in 100 cities around the world to highlight the everyday problems faced by women in public transport and their basic need to feel safe.
