Mobility and Gender in Mexico City and Lima

Jul 21 2022

Female and male commuters utilize public transport differently, and yet, not enough is known about women commuters’ 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 is collecting data via online surveys that reflects the issues faced by women transportation users in Mexico City, Mexico and Lima, Peru. The resulting paper will highlight the findings, as well provide actionable recommendations to empower female commuters and promote gender equality.
