As part of the Fall 2019 Speaker Series, METRANS and PSR hosted four coauthors of a new report, commissioned by LA Metro, called
Understanding How Women Travel
Participating in the discussion were Dr. Evelyn Blumenberg, Professor of Urban Planning, Director of the Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies, UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, Department of Urban Planning; Judith McCourt, President, Redhill Group; Claudia Galicia, Senior Transportation Planner, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro); and Emily Finkel, Senior Transportation Planner, Fehr & Peers.
This report detailed the results of a multi-year study into the travel behavior of female transit users, addressing perceived lack of attention to the differing ways in which men and women moved through space. The goal of this study was to create “a comprehensive strategy to address the complex and inter-related causes of gender inequity, mobility and economic challenges” said author Claudia Galicia.
