A Gendered Planning Mismatch

How do discussions and plans for the future of transportation and new innovative mobility services account for women’s travel patterns? Women tend to commute shorter distances and conduct more household serving trips than their male counterparts. This gender gap exists even in dual-income households and widens further for child-serving trips, even among households with no children.

What potential do new mobility options, bikesharing, ridesourcing, microtransit hold for closing this gap? Or will they rather reinforce these divergent travel patterns? Join us for a conversation about women’s travel patterns, current and future transportation planning and policy. Our experts will share their previous research, and discuss future plans from the City and County of Los Angeles to better serve women’s travel needs and patterns.

Reception will follow after the event.

Speakers:

  • Evelyn Blumenberg MA UP ’90 PhD ’95, UCLA Luskin Department of Urban Planning
  • Seleta Reynolds, Los Angeles Department of Transportation
  • Stephanie Wiggins, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority
