Yingling Fan to give opening presentation at the 23rd annual Center for Transportation Studies Transportation Research Conference.
In her most recent work, Fan led a team that analyzed the labor supply to "competitive clusters" of industries such as medical manufacturing and publishing. The team says that to improve job access by transit, it's more effective to centralize jobs than housing--and recommends integrated policies to encourage employers to locate near transit corridors. The study was funded by the McKnight Foundation, Surdna Foundation, and the Jay and Rose Phillips Foundation of Minnesota and builds on previous work Fan conducted under the Transitway Impacts Research Program.
