Transportation and Access to Employment in City Heights

Professors Marlon Boarnet and Genevieve Giuliano, Principal Investigators

This study will examine how transportation influences access to employment, focusing on City Heights. The researchers will create measures of employment accessibility, by automobile and transit to measure how well the transportation system in City Heights connects residents to jobs. The researcher will develop the same measures for other neighborhoods in San Diego, so that they can compare how well City Heights residents can access employment opportunities compared to elsewhere. The results will give insights into how transportation policy can better enhance job opportunities for City Heights residents.
