Changes in Travel Characteristics by Gender: U.S. Commuting Trends from a National Sample, 1985-2005

Women's travel is changing more than men's, with the increased participation of women in the workforce. Data from the American Housing Survey indicate, for example, that the gender gap for commute trip length is converging, although slowly. The author explores related trends and their implications for transportation policy and planning and identifies topics for further research.
