Mobility and Gender in Mexico City and Lima

Female and male commuters utilize public transportation differently, yet not enough is known about women’s commuting experiences and challenges. In countries such as Mexico and Peru, gendered perspectives in public policy are starting to be considered, but public action remains insufficient. Together with the socially-focused company WhereIsMyTransport, DPA collected data via online surveys that reflects the issues faced by women transportation users in Mexico City, Mexico and Lima, Peru. The resulting paper highlighted the findings and provided actionable recommendations to empower female commuters and promote gender equality.
