This report provides details about the various research methods that will be used for a study that seeks to establish the main barriers and challenges women experience in becoming motorcycle taxi riders in rural settings in Sierra Leone and Liberia. The overwhelming majority of motorcycle operators in both countries are males, serving what is perhaps a majority female clientele. Data will also be gathered on the gendered impact of the availability of motorcycle taxis in the rural areas of both countries. The data collection tools are listed and discussed, and the methodology explained. The annexes include the various questionnaires that we will use to collect data and which will help us to answer our research questions.
This project is funded by DFID under the Applied Research on Rural Roads and Transport Services through Community Access Programmes in Africa and Asia (AFCAP2 and AsCAP)
