No U-turn on women’s coach on trains despite criticism, will be expanded to other lines – Loke

There can be no U-turn on the current transfer to introduce ladies’s coaches on trains, says transport minister Anthony Loke. He stated that almost all of every day commuters on public transport are ladies, and through peak hours, security is a priority amongst females.

“In accordance with information from Prasarana and Contact n Go, 62& of every day customers of public transport are ladies. Throughout peak hours, the difficulty of security has turn into a priority for a lot of feminine riders. Therefore the ladies’s coach was launched on the Fast KL MRT Kajang Line, and will probably be launched on different traces too,” he stated. “This can be a proper initiative, we’ll defend it regardless of the criticism,” the Seremban MP added.

A few months in the past, Loke stated that there was a rise in instances of sexual harassment on trains. “The introduction of women-only coaches is because of the truth that we’re seeing a rise in case of sexual harassment on trains. Throughout rush hour, ladies must experience on overcrowded trains and typically there’s bodily contact,” he stated.

Those that commute every day on trains, what do you consider ladies’s coaches? My two sen is that it’s a terrific transfer if it makes feminine riders really feel safer, and males ought to respect it and never encroach into the designated vehicles.

However now that the coaches and platforms are reserved and clearly marked (with frequent bulletins in trains too so nobody can declare ignorance), girls ought to proceed to the ladies’s coach and never take up area within the different coaches. Many are fast to lambast thick skinned males caught sitting within the pink zone, and rightly so, however maybe the women can bertimbang rasa too. Let’s all respect one another.
