Travel characteristics for men and women vary because of the differing social and economic responsibilities they take up. Women are found to be more dependent on public transportation system, take up shorter trips, and chain trips considering the limited time and access to private vehicles.
The under-representation of women in transport sector, leads to development of infrastructure systems which fails to capture women’s perspective and requirements. These factors make women feel vulnerable while travelling in public transportation systems, which also leads to restricted mobility. Safe, comfortable, accessible, and affordable transport can help women take up missed opportunities and empower them. This Mobilogue seeks to facilitate a conversation on gender inclusive transport, discuss the initiatives taken up by different cities and its impact.
