Abstract: Transportation services facilitate mobility, thus providing access to economic resources as well as to education, employment, recreation and healthcare. These services must be equally accessible and affordable to all for which they should be designed by considering the unique needs of different groups of people. Public transportation systems are designed with little consideration to the needs of women hence causing them to change their travel behaviour. This study focuses on determining the trip characteristics of women, identifying the barriers that women face and the impact of those barriers on women’s travel for two study areas in Chennai. Data were collected by conducting household questionnaire survey among women to identify various parameters which have an impact on women’s travel characteristics and to identify the barriers that women face. The various barriers identified are economic barriers, physical barriers, emotional barriers, system barriers and barriers faced while boarding and alighting. The collected data were analysed statistically. Descriptive Analysis was done to determine the sociodemographic and trip characteristics of women and to identify the key factors and barriers which have an influence on women’s travel. Pearson correlation test was conducted to determine the correlation between variables and their magnitude. Regression analysis was carried out to determine the impact of these barriers on women’s travel by bus. Based on the identified barriers and their impact, suitable measures have been suggested.
Keywords: safety, affordability, bus stops, satisfaction, overcrowding, barriers
