COMMUTING PATTERNS OF INNER-CITY RESIDENTS

This article reports on the extent of suburban jobholding by inner-city residents in six major U.S. cities and the mode of transportation they use to get to those jobs. The proportion of inner-city workers who commuted to suburban jobs ranged from about one-tenth in Houston and New York to more than one-third in Los Angeles. In each of the areas, inner-city men were more likely to travel to suburban jobs than women. In every area except Los Angeles, a larger portion of blacks traveled to the suburbs than whites. The role of transportation in determining where inner-city residents usually work is difficult to isolate, since other influences were clearly present.
