The report focuses on the travel behavior and needs of women and female-presenting people. The project reviewed existing literature and the policy materials of 18 public transit systems in Canada’s 8 largest cities. It reveals the majority of riders on public transit are women who tend to travel more often at off-peak times — mid afternoons, evenings and late at night — to trip-chain — making multiple stops on the same trip — and take shorter trips with the purpose of serving others. It also shows that many transit agencies are starting to seek a better understanding in how they plan and operate transit service for women. Policy implications include a deeper investigation of women’s travel behavior; exploring novel avenues for gender-based data collection; and increasing the number of women employed across all levels of the public transit sector.
