Abstract

In this paper, we investigate activity-travel pattern of Iranian women, where typical patriarchal views and specific social and cultural norms may alter the patterns from those in western societies. We pay special attention to the role of marital and employment status of them on their activity-travel patterns. To this extent, we develop a joint mode and daily activity pattern (DAP) discrete choice model, which is a mixed nested Logit. The upper tier of the proposed model embodies women’s DAP choices, and the lower tier belongs to the mode choices. We try to show how different factors in a traditional society like Iran affect or restrict women's type and structure of activity- travel patterns.
