Geographic Area Covered: The nine-county DVRPC region.

Abstract: This report is DVRPC's next step toward understanding and analyzing transit-served areas in the region, to inform the public, its member governments, and its own work in shaping a transit-oriented region. It analyzes valuable demographic data focusing on Transit Zones - areas within a half-mile of rail transit stops. The majority of the data in this report comes from Reconnecting America: Center for Transit-Oriented Development (CTOD), purchased for use by DVRPC. The data available applies to all rail transit stops (subway, light rail, heavy rail) within the DVRPC region, as extracted from Reconnecting America's larger data sets for the Philadelphia and New York Metropolitan Regions. The areas of analysis in the report include ridership, population, homeownership, age, race, income, journey-to-work, and vehicle ownership. The report includes an appendix showing the complete raw data.

Key Words: transit-oriented development, SEPTA, PATCO, NJTRANSIT, transit zone, rail travel, transit ridership
