Rochester's Transportation and Poverty are Linked, Report says

A new report commissioned by Reconnect Rochester, a local transportation advocacy group, confirms that line of thinking and backs it up with some firm numbers. Ultimately, the analysis points out that there's a disconnect between where many people live and work in Monroe County, as well as employees' means of actually getting to their jobs.

In particular, the report shows that people who have access to cars also have much better access to jobs. And low-income workers who can't afford cars can have a hard time just getting to their place of employment.

The report, "Transportation and Poverty in Monroe County: How Land Use, Job Locations and Commuting Options Affect Access to Jobs," was drafted by the Center for Governmental Research, which Reconnect Rochester hired.
