Project summary:

This project will implement activities for the National Accessibility Evaluation pooled-fund study, performing accessibility evaluations describing conditions in 2018 and 2019. 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 by driving and by transit in metropolitan areas across America.
