Did you know men and women use the transportation system differently? For instance, men typically either drive or ride the bus to work and home each day. That’s it. But women drop the kids at school or daycare, go to the gym, go to work, pick the kids up on the way home, stop by the grocery store, go home and make dinner and then sometimes leave again later to attend meetings or see friends.
I feel tired just writing that out. Realizing the differences in the genders, many planners are working now to design cities and transportation systems with the needs of women in mind.
