WOMEN AND JOURNEY TO WORK
KVINNER OG ARBEIDSREISER
The report describes differences in the modal split and time used for the journey-to-work by women and men. Women travel shorter and more often walk and go by public transport. Men to a larger extent use car. Women, especially married adjust both their gainful employment and their journey-to-work to domestic work. The increasing labor participation among women raises the question of how the total travel pattern will be affected. The consequences for womens work opportunities of different urban development strategies are discussed.
