The Gender and Indigenous Transport Nexus: Issues and Challenges of Jeepney Drivers and Passengers in Relation to Travel Time and Delay

Indigenous, informal transport such as the Public Utility Jeepney (PUJ) or simply Jeepney provides widespread public transport service in Philippine cities. While PUJ may provide far reaching benefits to transport workers and passengers alike, research on the gendered aspect of PUJ use and patronage has received little attention. A significant factor contributing to daily travel behaviours, several studies have shown that there are gendered differences in travel patterns of individuals. This research paper addresses an important research question - the gendered dimensions of PUJs. Using a quantitative-based survey methodology research design to collect information related to PUJ travel time and delay, the research uses a heuristic examination to understand the perceived difference between genders on our transportation system. It uses Cagayan de Oro (Philippines) as its empirical case setting to examine how women experience transport exclusion, and imply why a more in-depth involvement in transport policymaking and leadership is called for.
