How to plan for inclusive and sustainable urban transport
Creating inclusive, safe and affordable transport for all is one of the targets of Sustainable Development Goal 11. It requires paying attention to the needs of vulnerable groups such as women, children, persons with disabilities and older persons. To achieve this goal, local government need to understand the way vulnerable groups experience public transport on a daily basis.
The Swedish International Centre for Local Democracy (ICLD) has published a toolbox which provides a guide for local government officials and politicians interested in designing and planning for inclusive, safe and sustainable public transport. The toolbox is based on the experiences of the city of Machakos (Kenya), but it can be applied in other contexts.
