Enabling Safe Access to Mass Transit (SAM) Toolkit

Enabling Safe Access to Mass Transit (SAM) Toolkit

The Enabling Safe Access to Mass Transit (SAM) Toolkit is part of a suite of products, including the SAM Workshop, based on the WRI India publication, “Safe Access Manual – safe access to mass transit stations in Indian cities.” The safe access approach offers strategies to create safer conditions for pedestrians and cyclists in station areas.

This toolkit consists of guidelines and materials for an interactive activity addressing safe access to mass transit in the context of a station area (0.5-1 km area around mass transit station). Using an interactive exercise and discussions, participants will explore the processes involved to ideate and co-create last mile connectivity solutions with community and city representatives.

The SAM Toolkit is designed to guide coordinators and moderators in organizing the activity in their local context. It includes information about the SAM approach, logistics, roles and responsibilities, and timelines. Organizers can get in touch with the WRI team to obtain soft copies of the materials, including:

  • Interactive board
  • Role play cards
  • Presentation template about SAM
  • Google map template for preparing the station area

If you would like to organize an activity in your city, we invite you to contact us for more information and additional materials.
