The Women & Transport (2000) report shows that for ethnic minorities, the issues affecting women (and this could apply to men as well) focus particularly on the experience of racism whilst using transport, and the implications of this for their personal safety and their experience of travelling. There is also a concern relating to racial harassment, particularly for women using transport in some areas. The lack of availability of information for those for whom English is not their first language relates to the actual use of transport, the provision of written information relating to services, and the provision of announcements on vehicles (for example, where a train is splitting). Due to these considerations, women from ethnic minorities tended to prefer car use.
