Another way to measure the performance of the plan is by accessibility to jobs by auto, transit and walk-access transit. The maps below show the change, either positive or negative, in the number of jobs within 45 minutes of the households in that area.
Average Number of Jobs Accessible by Auto and Transit
The average number of jobs accessible within a 45-minute automobile commute is expected to go down slightly over the next 30 years, and the greatest reductions in job accessibility are expected to be on the eastern side of the region. This is due to a combination of projected increases in automobile congestion system-wide and the fact that the western portion of the region will see greater job growth over this period. Average accessibility by transit is forecast to increase, however overall accessibility to jobs by transit will remain significantly less than by automobile.
