Abstract

Until recently, transport planning and design was regarded as “gender-neutral” and were assumed to equally benefit both men and women. Now there is increasing recognition that women experience mobility differently than men. Thus, a one size-fits-all transportation system can aggravate gender and socioeconomic inequalities and limit women’s access to economic opportunities.  There is a growing body of literature that documents the differences in men and women’s mobility pattern.
