Compare how a housing development on your selected parcel benefits from transit compared to the average TOD (transit oriented development location) and non-TOD location in Cook County.
The ability to access jobs by transit enhances low income tenants' ability to gain and keep employment, and is also a good indicator that the transit provides access to other goods and services.
Within a 30-minute transit trip from this location there are --- entry level jobs (requiring a associates degree or less). There are also --- jobs in the retail sector, a good indicator of the access to retail locations. For a more detailed breakdown of these jobs visit AllTransit.
Having mobility options beyond auto ownership and public transit, can reduce transportation expenses.
Transportation costs depend largely on location, but also on household makeup. The monthly transportation cost is estimated to be - - to own cars (mostly from depreciation), - - to drive them (gas, tires, maintenance, etc.), and - - for transit fares. See The Housing and Transportation (H+T®) Affordability Index for more information.
By comparison, if this building were located in the average TOD location the tenants would take - - trips costing approximately --. If this building were located in the average non-TOD location the tenants would take - - trips per week costing approximately --
The largest component of transportation cost is usually auto ownership. If tenants can own fewer cars and still get to work and all other aspects of household life, they can use the savings on other expenses.
See The Housing and Transportation (H+T®) Affordability Index for more information.
Parking use depends on many things including the building makeup and its location. The building you designed in this location will have a range* of nn to nn cars parked on a weekday night. This is in contrast to having nn nn parked cars in an average location in Cook County that is not in a TOD.
*This range represents the modeled parking utilization plus and minus the 95% confidence level from the estimated.
Locations with good transit, and in particular TODs, allow households to drive less and thus create fewer climate-changing emissions. See The Housing and Transportation (H+T®) Affordability Index for more information.
The table above shows how much spending power there is for all the tenants in the ---unit building you designed, once rent and transportation costs are removes. This is compared to a scenario where a single familiy house, a two-flat or a four-flat were build in the same location. Using the household make up for the building you designed (considerng the mix of bedrooms per unit, rents and affordable rates) compared to the typical household within a ¼ mile a ½ mile 1 mile.
