No Men Allowed on Jakarta’s Trains!

Okay, okay, the title is a bit misleading. Of course, men are welcome on Jakarta’s Trains,  but there is a special wagon only for ladies! And yes, they do kick unknowing menfolk off!
In a sense, Indonesia is on the cutting-edge. There seems to be a growing request around the world for separated transport. Cities like Rio offer it and various countries in Asia let women have their own space. On the news just the other day, I heard of a women only taxi service that was starting to shuttle around the ladies of NYC.

I’ve never really felt threatened on any public transport. (Except while trying to dodge Roman ticket controllers on the bus during college….) However, I do like the idea of this women – only stuff. Especially when travelling alone. One less thing to worry about.

What’s your opinion on women only transport?
