Looking for transit accessible locations?

One of the most important considerations by people who can choose between driving or riding on public transit -- so called "choice rides" -- is the relative amount of time each alternative requires. During rush hour, rail transportation on dedicated right of way is often very attractive because it is as fast or almost as fast as driving. While you might be able to guess the relative amount of time required to travel to and from a particular location, guesses are often wrong, so we applied a measure of relative transit accessibility -- the Transit Accessibility Index (TAI) -- to a number of sample locations in the Northern Virginia.
