dc.description.abstractThis thesis evaluates women's perceptions of security in Brussels' public transport through qualitative data from travel diaries and interviews with 10 women. It reveals how infrastructure, technology, and human interaction influence women's safety feelings, emphasizing the need for clear communication about security measures and the use of social media to bridge the information gap. The study addresses the question: "How do women perceive the effectiveness of security measures in Brussels' public transport?", highlighting the importance of diverse approaches to improve safety. Recommendations include infrastructural enhancements, increased staff presence and training, and utilizing technology for security information dissemination. These aim to create a safer environment for women, contributing to discussions on urban mobility, gendered safety, and the impact of technology on public transport security. This work adds to academic and practical insights into navigating urban spaces safely and inclusively for women
