Safe access to mass transit manual

The Safe Access Manual offers recommendations to develop safe access to mass transit stations in Indian cities. Improving access to mass transit in India—building on a national investment of US$15 billion to help develop urban transport infrastructure—can expand access to jobs and opportunities in urban India. The guide helps to build safe, affordable, and sustainable commuting options, create vibrant public spaces, and serve communities’ needs. The Safe Access Manual uses a case study approach to inform planning processes and guidelines, implementation and maintenance strategies, and evaluation indicators. The key takeaways focus on planning approaches, institutional structures, and financing mechanisms to address the challenges to implementing station accessibility plans.
