I do think this will be nice, and I remember a few buses that are ‘kanthawanta pamanai’ in Colombo as well. But it doesn’t do anything to solve the issue- namely, men abusing women in public transport. I suppose they will just harass the available women (the ones who couldn’t get into that special train or bus) more or transfer the place for the the purpose! Segregation doesn’t work, they should put more effort into a discussion on why there is a need for women-only transport.
