This was the quote from the article. The fact that women do more child 
transporting to school, doctor's offices, etc may be the result of women doing 
more childcare, but if it is "coincidental," it still is true. Women use public 
transportation more than men. 

Public transportation is still is underfunded compared to car culture. And, I 
couldn't find figures on it, but how many women do you know who are city 

It would be interesting to measure if men who take children to school and 
daycare, as many do, use cars more often than public transportation or if they 
do it only when they don't have to use public transportation.
