The provision of accessible urban transport solutions facilitates opportunities, including obtaining education and participating in economic activities. Yet, historically, urban transport planning has overlooked women’s mobility needs. The failure of mobility systems to respond to gender- based evidence poses challenges and places constraints on women because of their greater dependence on public transport. Therefore, India, through the G20, should recognise women’s mobility requirements and engage them in decision-making processes to achieve gender-inclusive policy formulation. This will provide a sound basis for attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially SDG 11.2, which aims to provide access to safe, affordable, accessible, and sustainable transport systems. The G20 can play an important role to ensure that public transport systems and last-mile connectivity are designed and implemented with gender equity in mind, creating equitable and sustainable transport systems for all.
