Does the city's pulse beat at the same rate for men and women? Gender time-geography

Abstract : Since the mid-70s, Household Travel Surveys (HTS) in France have been a major source of knowledge of the mobility of inhabitants within a territory. Since 2010, an " Urban Pulse " tool, developed by CETE de Lyon, has offered new perspectives for the use of travel survey data. Like the work based on gender time-geography, the tool enables an accurate understanding of the daily schedules of each individual within a territory, and focuses not only on trips, but also on what happens between two trips: who is where? For what type of activity? Thus, this paper focuses on gender-based spatio-temporal analyses of daily mobility in urban areas of the Rhône-Alpes region. What are the patterns / specificities in the spatial and temporal location of men and women in the cities of Lyon, Grenoble and Saint-Etienne? The " Urban Pulse " tool offers a new perspective on the diversity of urban areas, in the true sense of the term. Finally, these analyses highlight public policy issues that are raised when gender-based mobility is taken into account.
