It is well documented that access to transportation is incredibly important for someone seeking employment or looking to advance in a career.  Therefore, Smart Location Mapping a data resource from the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection Agency offers promising information that may help advocates and legislators make better decisions about workforce development policies.  The EPA page dedicated to this resource offers two different map-based resources.  The one of most interest for disadvantaged job seekers and their advocates is the Access to Jobs and Workers Via Transit Tool, which helps compare the accessibility of neighborhoods via public transit service.  For more information on this tool read the user guide.
