Shared baby trolley at public transport stations, in order to help women mobility.
Persona: Toddler moms who live on the outskirts and use multiple transportation means. (bus, train and subway)
Challenge: These women have a higher cost on transportation, since the baby trolley needs more space and women have to handle it along with other belongings while commuting. It is a true challenge to use the subway, buses and train stations with its long stairs and connections.
Solution: In order to help lap children moms who daily go through long distances between the city center and the outskirts, this is a public policy suggestion, for a foldable trolley sharing system, that would be available upon integration with the public transportation ticket, and could be returned at any other trolley loan point. These points could be spread throughout the city, both on city center and at the outskirts. Anonymous data collected by the loan system could help generate new insight and help planning the transport system, considering specific needs of women with lap children.
UPWIT Team Review: Here we share our first impressions on each solution, in order to spark new conversations, obtain specialised counselling or help you build upon these ideas:
Needs further thoughts / Concerns:
- Does it need to be a public policy or can it be a partnership with the private sector?
