A coalition of civil society groups is pushing fire the agency in charge of rail transport in South Africa to reintroduce a chaperone service for children and separate carriages for female passengers, GroundUp news site reports.
The group, under the #UniteBehind banner, said in a statement that “women commuters face specific threats to their safety. This must be considered and prioritised by Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa)”.
It said that a chaperone carriage would provide children with a safe space where they would be accompanied by volunteers cleared by Prasa.
