One of the most common complaints among public transport users is the driver’s attitude. Therefore, we trained 444 public transport drivers through 11 courses on street harassment, including 7 practical and theoretical workshops focused on mobility and inclusion. Drivers learn about the vulnerability of pedestrians and cyclists and gain knowledge on the sustainable mobility pyramid.
Also, more than 200 bus operators trained in workshops where drivers “get into the user’s skin” by experiencing limited mobility in wheelchairs, visual impairment, motor disability, and difficulties that the elderly and cyclists face when travelling. This way, drivers get to experience what people go through daily so they can improve their service.
The activities of the workshops consisted of:
These workshops were held on busy avenues, so that citizens could see the operators in action.
These workshops have contributed to constructing safe, inclusive public spaces free of violence and discrimination. By providing operators with the information and tools they need to detect street harassment, we contribute to creating a safe and welcoming environment for all public transport users. And finally, in promoting inclusion and equality, we also contribute to creating a more just, equitable, and inclusive society.
