Abstract

Public sexual harassment of women conducting their everyday lives is significantly underreported. Such experiences are not only traumatic, but can have a long term effect on women’s sense of worth and on their mobility patterns. The design of future transport systems provides an opportunity to address many aspects of mobility, from origin to destination and the factors influencing or limiting travel choices. Richer, more inclusive dialogues with transport users during planning and implementation may reduce current inequalities and create more inclusive accessible transport systems.
