Talking Headways: A Streetsblog Podcast

The Talking Headways podcast is a weekly podcast about transportation and urban design.

Aug 8, 2019

This week we are joined By Andrew Owen, Director of the Accessibility Observatory at the University of Minnesota. Andrew chats with us about how to measure accessibility and their work on mapping access to jobs by transit and bikes. 

Access is a way to measure how easy it is to get places – often jobs – in how much time. Taking into account both transportation and land use, access as a metric can be a powerful tool. On the podcast, Andrew describes the evolution of the metric and how it has been applied.
