Third Kochi Public Transport Day will Highlight Women and Public Transport

Highlighting the theme of ‘Women and Public Transport’, the third edition of the Kochi Public Transport Day campaign will be celebrated on March 28th (Wednesday).
The events for the day will focus on women, their mobility needs and the importance of sustainable public transport for women. At 4 pm, the campaigners will march from Rainbow Bridge, Marine Drive to Lalan Tower, High Court Junction, to promote the message of safe, accessible and convenient public transport for women. This will be followed by a panel discussion on ‘Going Places: Safety, Comfort and Convenience of Women in Public Transport’ at the open square near Lalan Tower.
The panellists for the discussion include Monolita Chatterjee (architect/urban planner), Nimmi J Chakola (entrepreneur), Ajina Mohan (media relations, Kudumbashree District Mission), Aswathy Dilip (urban designer/senior programme manager, Institute for Transportation & Development Policy) and Namrata Khona (corporate trainer/consultant). Sara John (Senior Project Associate, Centre for Public Policy Research) will moderate the discussion. The Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) will honour the metro passengers of highest patronage in the month of March with ‘Shreshtasanchari Puraskaram’ at the venue. Everybody can join the rally and discussion and help promote the campaign.
