Transport Planning Society Paper

Sarah Fish BSc Econ (Hons) MSc AMIHT

slide2

“We now have a female Secretary of State for Transport, with female Shadow Ministers from both the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats. Yet we have a transport profession that has traditionally been male dominated. Is it now necessary to have a more female inspired agenda? If so, what should it be? Or are male and female transport needs the same?”

National Travel Survey 2005

  • Women of all age groups use buses more than trains, with only men between 30 and 39 making more trips by public transport
  • Men’s journey’s are more likely to be of a longer distances
  • Men more likely to go home after a business trip, women ‘trip-chain’
  • Women less likely to have access to a car….men use the family car for travel to work purposes
slide7

The DfT’s Gender Equality Scheme 2007 – 2010

  • Women who have responsibilities for childcare and work prefer to travel by car;
  • Women experience problems of physical accessibility when escorting children, the reliability of services, access to information and concerns over safety and security;
  • Women’s relative lack of access to a private vehicle can limit their access to employment opportunities;
  • Transport difficulties can impact upon access to health care
slide9

“women often have the primary responsibility for childcare or for looking after older, sick or disabled relatives. More often than men, they work part time, particularly if they have dependent children. A smaller proportion of women than men hold driving licences”
