AllTransit Data Tools Analyze Social Benefits of Quality Transit


Share On Social!

AllTransit represents the largest source of user-friendly transit connectivity, access, and frequency data in America, using publicly available General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) data and new data created by Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT) and with funding from TransitCenter.

AllTransit analyzes the social benefits of good transit service through the lenses of health, equity, and economic development.

Users can rely on these tools to increase their understanding of the value of quality transit to improve transit and create sustainable and equitable communities.

When families in disadvantaged neighborhoods have access to transit and jobs, they have greater choices between housing units and employment opportunities, and alternative transportation options connecting the two, which also connects them to schools, parks, and healthy food. With that expanded choice comes a decreased dependence on automobiles, which frees up money for other important things. Through this connection to job opportunities and other valuable resources and services via transit, economic mobility increases; greenhouse gases decrease; and neighborhoods become more economically and environmentally resilient, all of which positively impact health.
