Access to Community Resources

Access to Community Resources

Being able to reach or access a variety of destinations (e.g., jobs, financial institutions, social contacts, health services, and grocery stores) is critical to many dimensions of a healthy community. Particularly for the elderly, the young or the financially disadvantaged, transit is the mode of transportation that provides such access (where walking or cycling is too burdensome). Opportunities to access transit service, in terms of service location and service time, often rely on certain levels of density.
