Transit Accessibility Improvement Tool (TAIT)

Transit Accessibility Improvement Tool

The Transit Accessibility Improvement Tool (TAIT) identifies communities who face transportation disadvantages and may have greater potential need for public transit. The TAIT identifies Census block groups with concentrations of residents who are below poverty, living with disabilities, or age 65 and over.

The TAIT application also provides overlay layers that identify:
  • Additional populations with potential need for public transit
  • Populations relevant to civil rights compliance
  • Transit agency service areas

Demographic data for the TAIT is based on American Community Survey 5-year estimates.

Consult the user guide or the pop-ups in the top right corner of the application for more information.
