The lack of mobility of labour constitutes a potential source of labour market segmentation. This paper shows through the use of individual data that different groups of workers develop their daily labour activities in geographical spaces which are also different. It quantifies in a separate way, for male and female workers, to what extent a set of personal, professional and place of residence features can be associated with a higher or lower probability of commuting. Tentative explanations of the diverse Travel-to-Work patterns and some labour policy implications are also explored in the paper. La falta de movilidad geográfica de los trabajadores constituye una fuente potencial de segmentación del mercado de trabajo. Esta investigación muestra, a partir de datos individuales, que los ámbitos espaciales en los que diversos grupos de trabajadores realizan cotidianamente sus actividades laborales son distintos y cuantifica de forma separada para hombres y mujeres en qué medida la presencia de un conjunto de características personales, profesionales y del lugar de residencia se asocia a una mayor o menor movilidad cotidiana por razones laborales. En el trabajo también se analizan las posibles explicaciones de estos comportamientos y se señalan algunas de sus consecuencias en materia de política de empleo.
