2018 State of Transportation
Land use, housing and jobs
- Adding new jobs, but are we keeping up with affordable housing and transportation choices for those new workers?
- Lack of affordable housing pushes workers further from urban job centers -
- Can't afford to live where they work
- Travel longer distances
- Fewer transportation choices on the urban fringe - people "have to drive"
- Bedroom communities generate their own demand for services and for employees to fulfill that demand
