22 Social Equity Rankings Considering both Housing & Transportation Costs: WalkUPs and Walkable Neighborhoods are more affordable than their Drivable Sub-Urban counterparts: 43% vs 48% of HH income From a Social Equity Perspective: High Economic Ranking WalkUPs tend to offer: High levels of accessibility Low transportation costs High opportunity BUT High housing costs Poor test scores ACCESSIBILITY/OPPORTUNITY AFFORDABILITY ADJACENT COMMERCIAL UNIVERSITY REGIONAL CENTER NEIGHBORHOOD SUB-DIVISION EDGE CITY

23 WalkUPs: Education & GDP $90k $80k Educational Attainment & GDP Per Capita (2013 per capita GDP, chained 2009 dollars) Significant correlation, but no causal link % of workforce with college degrees: Top 6 high-ranked metros: 39% Low-ranked 10 metros: 29% GDP per capita: Top 6 high-ranked metros: $69,000 Low-ranked 10 metros: $49,000 or METRO PER CAPITA GDP $70k $60k $50k $40k $30k $20k $10k $0 $0 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% 50% % OF METRO POPULATION AGE 25 AND OVER WITH BACHELOR S DEGREE OR HIGHER R2 = 0.62 BOSTON Y = 150,389.65X + 7,258.51

24 Conclusions A major structural shift towards walkable urbanism appears to be happening in Boston, especially transitoriented development (TOD) Rising market share and high valuation premiums are indicators of this shift Maintenance & expansion of transit system is critical for the economic success of region Rising prices raise social equity concerns; attainable housing policies must be put in place

25 Is Boston Strong? RESILIENCE OF THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM The Blizzards of showed how vulnerable WalkUPs and Walkable Neighborhoods are given the years of deferred maintenance and the need for expansion of the MBTA rail and bus transit system. But, walkable urban places generates much higher government revenues to help pay for the needed resources
