Millennium Fellowship Project: Atlanta Transit Deserts

A transit desert is a location that has unreliable public transportation for the people that live there. For instance, if a person lives miles away from the nearest train station/bus stop and are unable to get to work reliably, they live in a transit desert. The reason that this is important is because people that live in these deserts are unable to get a job that they can reliably travel to, and thus they can miss considerable needed income to live. A goal that this project hopes to achieve is to measure the quality of transit access in and around the city of Atlanta and find a way to deliver this information to public officials and the people of Atlanta.
