JOURNEY TO WORK PATTERNS OF TRANSPORTATION CONSUMERS AMONG THE URBAN DISADVANTAGED

The transportation problems of the disadvantaged residents of poverty areas are particularly acute, since they do not either live or work in the CBD's. The central business district is often encompassed by census tracts defined as poverty or low-income areas. Moreover, because disadvantaged poverty area residents constitute a relatively small segment of the total metropolitan area population, their transportation needs are often overlooked. In order to place the transportation needs of the urban disadvantaged in proper perspective, the report examines the extent of suburbanization of industries in metropolitan areas in order to assess their impact on future employment opportunities of disadvantaged workers in the central cities. It then seeks answers to some critical questions.
