Interactive Travel Time and Housing Cost Map for the San Francisco Bay Area
Date published: Resource type: MapExternal link: maps.onebayarea.org/travel_housing/Summary: This project was a 2013 John and Jane Public Competition winner. From TRB Committee ADA 60: In the nation’s larger metropolitan areas, where housing is expensive and traffic is congested, the choice of where to live often involves a trade-off between housing cost and commute length. Better planning, however, can help mitigate this persistent dynamic, as outlined in California Senate Bill 375, a 2008 law that directs regional agencies to formally consider the joint impacts of land use and transportation planning decisions. To help illustrate this trade off, during the development of the recently adopted (July 2013) Plan Bay Area, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (together with its partner agency, the Association of Bay Area Governments), created an interactive map that combines housing price and travel shed information.
