Gender Dimension of Urban Mobility, Bicycle as a Mode Choice

Abstract:

Access to opportunities and services is one of the primary determinants of empowerment for women in urban areas making gender sensitive urban transport services critical aspect of urban infrastructure. Women have complex mobility needs due to their multiple roles in the household and have to consider many socio-economic factors in their choice of the mode they use for making their trips. These range from the welfare needs and time constraints to patriarchal attitudes and lack of safety on the streets. This is illustrated very clearly by the lower mode shares of women cycling in Indian cities, even though they usually have access to slower and cheaper modes of travel in a household. Using case study data, this paper shows that while men make choice of cycling based on two simple indicators of income and availability of bicycle, women’s choices additionally take into account factors like trip time, number of people in the household and whether different types of modes are available to others in the household before making their choices.
