Transportation and Access to Employment in City Heights

The purpose of this research was to examine access to employment opportunities by car and by public transit among City Heights residents.  We developed three access measures. We compared access for City Heights with (1) San Diego County averages and (2) fifteen comparison neighborhoods .Auto accessibility is much superior to transit accessibility, no matter how measured. Poor access by transit is likely a problem for many City Heights residents because the rate of car ownership is low; about 17% of all City Heights households have no private vehicle, compared to 6% for the County.
