Even though we are focusing on Columbia Road and Tremont Street at the time. Having a bigger picture understanding of gender and mobility options will also help us to understand better the correlation between both experiences.
At the same time, having the Boston area as a secondary case study allows us to pay attention to gender experiences not only while traveling across main city roads but also throughout paths and parks. We would love to hear from you how your different identities associate with your experiences of greenways.
