Gender Sensitive Mini-Bus Services and Transport Infrastructure for African Cities

This Toolkit provides minimum standard guidelines and practical tools for creating safer and more accessible public transportation systems for women in African cities. It aims at showing public transport operators how to improve their services for women  and at local and national government authorities. UN-Habitat and the Flone Initiative developed the Toolkit based on the research conducted in Nairobi, Kenya, showing that women have  travel patterns from men and often experience sexual harassment in the streets or on public transport.
