EMEL has been working with citizens to better understand and help reduce the gender gap in cycling within the scope of the TInnGO project. We started with user research to better understand women’s perceptions and barriers through a survey and in-depth interviews with female bicycle users and non-users. The following phase consisted of co-creating an action plan to identify solutions for more equal bike access for women and to reduce the current gender gap. This encompassed workshops in which female bicycle users and non-users were invited to co-design and validate solutions, giving them an active voice in the development of policies and measures.
