This report begins by providing background on factors that influence the reach and efficiency of transit in metropolitan areas. After describing the data and methods used to profile transit in the 100 largest U.S. metropolitan areas, the report presents a series of measures that characterize transit access across and within these metro areas. Along the way, it assesses the regional and local factors that relate to how well transit serves metropolitan populations and connects them to employment. The report concludes with a range of implications for policymakers, employers, and workers at all levels.
