Transportation is the lifeblood of every city, serving as the initial point of contact for practically every individual seeking healthcare, employment, or education. Despite significant progress in recent decades, women still encounter significant disparities which shape their transportation behavior and experiences as well as their access to opportunities. Analyzing current literature on gender and mobility and conducting case studies and expert interviews, this paper aims to identify the key barriers to progress and recommend innovative solutions to community members and stakeholders. The findings give insights on how to address the urban planning gender divide and its implications on society at large.
