Prioritizing Women's Safety: TransSafe Project's Initiatives in Cape Town, South Africa

The Trans-Safe Project underscores the critical importance of addressing the specific safety needs of women within its demonstration actions, particularly in collaboration with cities like Cape Town.

 

Recognizing the unique challenges faced by women in urban environments, the project implements initiatives aimed at enhancing the safety and accessibility of transportation for women and children in Cape Town.

 

For instance, the project prioritizes the development of safe walking mapping for women, acknowledging the particular concerns women encounter while navigating the city's streets. By providing tools and resources to identify and address areas of concern such as poorly lit or high-crime areas, the project aims to empower women to move safely and confidently within their communities.

 

Additionally, the TransSafe Project emphasizes the mapping of non-motorized transport (NMT) user safety, with a specific focus on vulnerable road users, including women. By highlighting the experiences and needs of these marginalized groups, the project seeks to inform policy and infrastructure improvements that prioritize their safety and well-being. Through these targeted initiatives, the Trans-Safe Project endeavors to create more inclusive and equitable transportation systems in Cape Town, ultimately fostering safer and more sustainable mobility for all, with a particular emphasis on the safety and empowerment of women.
