German Rail company indroduces women only carriages


The Mitteldeutsche Regiobahn (MRB) will introduce two specialized compartments on all trains on its Leipzig to Chemnitz service in the coming weeks.

It’s launching ‘women and children only’ carriages on one of its services in a bid to help women feel safer.

The dedicated carriages for single women and mothers with children will be located in the central carriage next to quiet zones and the train conductor. This was reported by German news Die Welt.

The proximity of these carriages to customer service is a conscious decision, an MRB spokesperson told Süddeutsche Zeitung, to help female passengers feel safer while traveling by rail.
