Project summary:

The National Accessibility Evaluation Phase II project will implement activities for the National Accessibility Evaluation pooled-fund study, performing accessibility evaluations describing conditions in 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024. This work plan covers Metropolitan Council's contributions for calendar year 2022. The National Accessibility Evaluation project has two main objectives. First, it will create a new, national Census block-level accessibility dataset that can be used by partners in local transportation system evaluation, performance management, planning, and research efforts. Second, it will produce and publish a series of annual reports describing accessibility to jobs and other destinations by driving and by transit in metropolitan areas across America.
