This study was commissioned by The World Bank as part of the research to feed into the development of the Government of Nepal’s National Transport Management Strategy. The overall strategy vision is ‘to develop safe, efficient and environmentally friendly transport’. Under the second pillar of the draft strategy which refers to ‘Management of Road Transport’, there is specific reference to the particular needs of women in transport.
The context for public transport in Kathmandu Valley is changing at a fast rate; the population has increased more than 60% in the last decade, estimates suggest more than 400% increase in vehicle numbers and there are over 5,300 public transport vehicles in the valley alone. Nepal has for many years had a high percentage of women in the workforce and this study has noted that during peak travel periods in the day at least one third of the travelling public are women.
