Black residents faced the longest travel times for trips to school, health care appointments, and grocery stores. People with disabilities were the least likely to travel on a given day. White travelers took the greatest number of trips in the region each day.
The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) explored these key findings and others for the second part of our policy brief series about My Daily Travel, a pre-pandemic household travel survey that involved 12,000 respondents from northeastern Illinois.
The second part examines disparities in how residents experience regional transportation based on demographic characteristics, such as age, household income, and race and ethnicity.
