Gender and (smart) Mobility

Men dominate the transport sector, whether is trains, cars, or planes. In Europe less than a third of people employed in the transport sector are women. The way women and men move around society also differs significantly. Are our mobility systems biased towards men’s travel needs and patterns?

Ramboll Smart Mobility investigated the topic with support from the Ramboll Foundation, Trafikverket, SLL (Stockholm County Council) in Sweden, HSL (The Helsinki Regional Transport Authority) in Finland and VBB (Verkehrsverbund Berlin-Brandenburg) in Germany. The findings from desk research, expert interviews, and survey of more than 3.500 people across 7 countries can be found in the “Gender and (smart) Mobility”.
