JOURNEY TO WORK PATTERNS OF TRANSPORTATION CONSUMERS AMONG THE URBAN DISADVANTAGED

The primary objective of this study of journey-to-work patterns of transportation consumers among the urban disadvantaged was to determine the problems these workers have in getting to their jobs. Cost, time and mode of transportation of low-income workers in selected cities were analyzed by race, earnings, occupation and industry. The impact on employment opportunities of the suburbanization of industry in the metropolitan areas of these cities has also been assessed. The 12 cities selected for study were: Atlanta, GA; Buffalo, NY; Dayton, OH; Denver,CO; Houston, TX; Louisville, KY; Miami, FL; Milwaukee, WI; Portland, OR; San Francisco, CA; Washington, DC; and Wichita, KS. Ethnic data are also included.
