Population and Jobs with at Least Moderately High Transit Availability
This indicator will report the percentage of population and jobs with at least moderately high transit availability. This is based on a CMAP-created index that considers multiple factors: proximity to transit stops, frequency of service, destinations reachable without a transfer, and walkability. For a specific area, this index is intended to measure the relative level of access residents and workers have to the transit system, regardless of their actual choice of mode.
The proposed transit availability targets (below) could be reached if many regionally significant projects were completed, along with policies to encourage infill development and improvements to walkability around transit stations.
2025: At least 58 percent of jobs and 54 percent of population with moderately high or high transit availability
2050: At least 65 percent of jobs and 58 percent of population with moderately high or high transit availability
