Transdev joins the UITP & World Bank Campaign « Public Transport for Me »


Transdev Group honors the International Women’s Day by joining the UITP & World Bank in promoting their campaign “Public Transport for Me” – #PT4ME. This campaign will officially launch on this day and aims at promoting gender responsive policies in public transit.

Public transport should be inclusive and accessible for all. Together we can be the voice that will help women from all over the world to have access to safer public transport environments.
Mohamed Mezghani, UITP Secretary General

Addressing the issue of women’s safety in public transit is one of the major challenges of our industry. The UITP has reported that a recent international study revealed that 80% of women are afraid of being harassed while using public transit. It is therefore important to act and to show support. At the same time, it is key to broaden the discussion beyond the issue of perceived safety.

I recognize that still today full gender equality has not been reached in our society, and our industry is no different; women are still not represented in equal numbers in many of our jobs, including management. This is why Transdev Group has decided to join with UITP and the World Bank to support the #PT4ME.
Thierry Mallet, CEO Transdev Group

In a Group internal statement issued widely by Mr. Mallet, he urged all Transdev colleagues to take a moment to watch the #PT4ME video.

The aim: to reflect on how our own daily actions could create a more welcoming and inclusive public transportation for everyone.
