Abstract

A computer-coded representation of the public transit system in Chicago was analyzed to determine minimum point-to-point travel times. These are used to estimate the level of service offered to unemployed persons traveling to new work opportunities. The overall quality of public transit in Chicago is evaluated by comparing travel time data with the locations of jobs and the unemployed. Recommendations for improving the transit system in this regard are offered.
