Transit Access and Zero-Vehicle Households

Source: Adie Tomer, Brookings Institution, Metropolitan Policy Program, August 2011

From the summary:
Millions of zero-vehicle households live in areas well served by transit. Yet hundreds of thousands of zero-vehicle households live out of transit’s reach, particularly in the South and in the suburbs. And those with transit access still cannot reach a majority of jobs in metro areas within 90 minutes. Based on these trends, leaders must recognize these households’ unique mobility needs and aim to improve job accessibility through sound policy.
