Isinulong ng Department of Transportation and Communications ang gender equality sa transportation sector.
“As we push for the modernization of our transportation systems, we are mindful of the significant role that women play in nation-building,” pahayag ni DoTC Secretary Jun Abaya.
“We are proceeding from two basic premises: first, that horizontal mobility – or moving passengers and goods from one place to another – empowers people by giving them better access to socio-economic opportunities such as education, employment, and health facilities.”
“Second, we must pave the way for vertical mobility in terms of gender concerns. This means that we should do our part in helping uplift women’s concerns in public transportation by addressing their needs,” diin ni Abaya.
