Since the early 2000s there has been renewed interest in the study of gender differences in mobility. The emphasis has increasingly been on the interdependence, of spouse?s daily commutes. In this article, using mobility data from the Paris Region survey, we identify two types of dependence in chauffeuring children in dual-earner families. On the one hand, there is a ripple effect: when one spouse is chauffeuring the other has a higher probability of chauffeuring too. On the other hand, spouses share their chauffeuring trips before work and after work. However, the interdependence between spouses is asymmetrical. Women are more sensitive to their spouse?s working hours than men. Women?s probability of chauffeuring children increases with their spouse?s duration of employment, while this is not the case for men. Thus women still tend to do more chauffeuring than their spouses.
