Malta Public Transport for Women’s Work Rights

Malta Public Transport, the private company operating the route buses, joined the “Women in Transport-EU Platform for Change”, a program whose objective is to strengthen women’s employment and equal opportunities for women and men in the transport sector.

The European Commission is promoting women’s access to the transport sector, stating that the transport sector is not gender balanced with only 22% of women. In spite of this,  women make up around one third of the local management team at Malta Public Transport.

By joining this program Malta Public Transport, is committed to promoting women’s work, sharing ideas and good practices in different areas of the transport sector, ensuring a balance between work and family, and other actions that will benefit both men and women and that will contribute to eliminating gender stereotypes.
