This report sets out the nature of the gender imbalance in the transport sector across the newly enlarged Europe. It highlights the nature of travel differences between men and women as transport users and consumers and the implications this has for the planning, operations and management of the transport system. It sets out the challenges faced by institutions within the transport sector to mainstream gender equality. It also highlights the male-domination of employment within all areas of the transport labour force and the few examples of good practice that are trying to overcome women's under-representation in this industry. The report sets out the criteria for a European transport system with gender equality at its core and a series of concrete actions appropriate to start on that journey.
