The answer to the question “How far will people walk to reach a transit stop?” has traditionally been half a mile. New research presented yesterday at the Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board (which our Transportation Planner Eve is attending, by the way) says that number may be wrong. Which could change the whole context of what living “close” to transit means. So just how far does public transit reach extend? The Atlantic Citylab takes a look at the new numbers.
