The Accessibility Observatory at the University of Minnesota is the nation's leading resource for the research and application of accessibility-based transportation system evaluation. Accessibility, which examines both land use and transportation systems, measures how many destinations, such as jobs, can be reached in a given time.

This first-of-its-kind research ranks the 50 largest (by population) metropolitan areas in the United States for connecting workers with jobs via bicycle.



National Accessibility Evaluation

The National Accessibility Evaluation pooled-fund study measures accessibility to jobs across the entire U.S. Each pooled-fund partner has direct digital access to these detailed accessibility datasets.

The Accessibility Observatory is a program of the Center for Transportation Studies.
