Missed Opportunity: Transit and Jobs in Metropolitan America - Brookings Institution


Against the backdrop of rising gas prices, growing suburban poverty, continued sprawl and uneven transit availability in cities and suburbs, the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings will release a first-of-its-kind analysis that shows how transit systems link workers to jobs in metropolitan America. The analysis informs critical policy and investment decisions at a time of scarce public and private resources. Vice President and Director of Metropolitan Policy Bruce Katz will moderate a dialogue with U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan and U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

Where Falk Auditorium The Brookings Institution 1775 Massachusetts Ave., NW Washington, DC

I reviewed an earlier draft of this report, and the research in here is important in advancing consistent measures of transit accessibility across cities. This will be a baseline on which other metropolitan comparisons of accessibility can be compared.
