The stats are staggering. Whether it's shuttling children to childcare via transit or paying for a late night Uber/Lyft "just in case", NYU Wagner researchers found that women pay up to $1200 more than men a year on transportation costs. Overall, women pay 7% more than men on general goods and services. On Tuesday April 30, 2019, Women in Urbanism will host a conversation around the Gender Tax in Transportation -- where we’ll try to unpack the burden women face in transportation costs.
Looking beyond the recent studies on gender, who else faces disproportionate costs for security, goods and services? How can we help set the stage for a more equitable environment for all people, especially those that are traditionally targeted in cities?
We’ll discuss these questions and explore additional concepts with leaders across the industry, in both the public and private sectors.

New Mobility Policy Director - TransForm
Vice President, Ventures - AECOM
Planning Director, SFMTA
