“When you can’t find or afford transportation to a job interview, job training or place of work, you give up after a while. This cycle is hard to break, and frequently moves from one generation to the next, creating a downward spiral of long-term unemployment, poverty and despair.”

An excellent study of the transportation needs of low income workers in New Haven, CT. It’s a problem that many cities face across the nation.
