The Accessibility Observatory at the University of Minnesota is the nation's leading resource for the research and application of accessibility-based transportation system evaluation.
This series of reports ranks accessibility to jobs in major U.S. cities by mode:
The 2016 edition of Access Across America: Transit reports that 36 of the 49 largest metros showed increases in job accessibility by transit. Though rankings of the top 10 metro areas for job accessibility by transit remain unchanged from the previous year, new data comparing changes within each of the 49 largest U.S. metros over one year helped researchers identify the places with the greatest increases in access to jobs by transit. Cincinnati and Charlotte improved more than 11 percent. Seattle, which ranks 8th for job accessibility by transit, improved nearly 11 percent. Read more about the study.
The National Accessibility Evaluation pooled-fund study measures accessibility to jobs across the entire U.S. Each pooled-fund partner has direct digital access to these detailed accessibility datasets.
