Walking all the way to the PSET institution was the second most popular mode of transport for both males and females, while taking the train was the least popular.
According to the report, the majority of workers drove cars (36%) or used taxis (28.6%). Women, however, are more likely to depend on public transport than men.
The percentage of males commuting as car drivers (41%) surpassed that of females by 11.8 percentage points in 2020. Taxis were the most popular mode of transportation for females to get to places of employment. Females were also generally more likely to use buses than males.
Day trips, defined as travelling away from one’s usual home and returning on the same day, but not including trips to educational facilities or work, declined from 60.5% in 2013 to 28.8% in 2020 — the Covid-19 pandemic year.
The reasons for taking trips differ between males and females. Women are more likely than males to take trips to religious/cultural/traditional facilities, go shopping, attend funerals, and travel to medical facilities. Men are more likely to have visited friends/family/ancestral home, attended sporting events, and travelled to look for work.
