This paper is part of a series titled “Towards Inclusive Participation of Vulnerable Women and People with Disabilities in the Social and Economic Life”. The project was implemented by the Social Justice pillar, the West Asia-North Africa Institute (WANA) and supported by IM Swedish Development Partner in the Middle East.

The project sought to impart essential research skills and tools to twenty-four male and female trainees to enable them to advocate for issues of interest to marginalised women and persons with disabilities. It culminated with trainees drafting policy papers pertaining to social and economic issues facing these populations.  This paper developed recommendations to improve public transportation and address issues facing women, using the World Health Organisation’s Gender Assessment Tool as a reference. The alternatives were devised following these components: investment in the public transport sector, organisation, operation, awareness, development and training, for the aim of promoting women's economic participation by contributing to the advancement of public transportation systems.
