About

Public transport workers are facing important changes due to the introduction of technologies that have the potential to further transform the way that work is currently performed, overseen and organised. This report has been commissioned by the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) to ensure that the needs and concerns of women public transport workers are taken into account in discussions on the future of work in public transport. Too often women are considered primarily as users of public transport, with little attention to the issues facing the many women who participate in a variety of roles in the public transport workforce globally.
