Abstract [en]

This article highlights how environmental issues influence transport planning, andhow they make transport planners rethink previous categorizations of user groups.The introduction of an environmental discourse leads to a questioning of men’stravel activities, i.e. car driving. However, the critique against men’s travelling doesnot address all men. Instead, two types of masculinities are constructed in the localplanning discourse: the first one is a ‘problematic’ obsolete old driver. The secondone is a young ‘quality conscious’ man who opts for new technological solutions.The relationship between these two constructions of masculinities is hierarchical.The transport planners interpret it as their responsibility to make sure that publictransport is regarded as attractive to younger men and their imagined ‘needs’. Theelderly men however, are made scapegoats and are blamed for their unsustainabletravelling. These rather stereotypical constructions of men also include a negativeperception of elderly men. The analysis is based on discussions in eight focusgroups, accomplished in 2009 with 36 transport planners and politicians (24 menand 12 women) working with the planning of the future public transport system in Malmö city in the south of Sweden.
