Equality in reverse: women’s work and automation in public transport

Report Published 02 May 2024

This study explores four cases from across the world where the introduction of automation and cashless ticketing in public transport systems is leading to an “equality reverse” in the workforce. Women workers, already underrepresented in the sector, are being disproportionately impacted by the job losses and negative impacts of work reorganisation. This case study was researched and written for the ITF by labour and social policy researcher Julie Porter.
