Seats reserved for women on Karwa buses, In a bid to encourage women to use public transport, Mowasalat has allocated the first two rows in all Karwa buses to women passengers.
The move is also meant to show respect to the privacy of women, and based on the directive from Minister of Transport, HE Jassim bin Saif al-Sulaiti, Mowasalat said.
Mowasalat, the operator of the Karwa transport services, has ensured that passengers are informed about the new arrangement through various channels, and posters in buses. Passengers will also see stickers near the seats reserved for women.
Mowasalat recently added 150 new low-floor buses and 150 more have arrived this month to join the fleet. Passengers on wheelchairs can have access to 55 buses. The buses are also equipped with Kentkart validating machines for ticketless, cashless travel using Karwasmartcard.
