Gender roles play out in any spatial context, and can thus be expected to vary across the urban landscape. The development of any area can not be considered fair and equitable unless the issue of gender is taken into consideration. This study seeks to examine the relationship between gender and intra-urban transport in Sabon-Gari area of Zaria. Data for this study was obtained through the administration of questionnaire to respondents sampled systematically in six major streets of the study area. Pearson C hi-square and phi test were used for the analyses. The results shows that the relationship between gender and intra-urban mode choice is statistically significant with a strong strength of association, Phi = 0.542. The implication of this result is that if the country is to emerge as a viable and modern society, equity and fairness should be assured in the provision of transport services so that gendered variation in transport needs are taken into consideration.
