Housing and transportation costs combine to take up almost half of the average household’s budget. While housing expenditures are usually easy to determine, transportation costs are much less transparent. The Location Affordability Portal seeks to bridge that information gap in order to help consumers, researchers, and policymakers better understand the impact of transportation costs on affordability.
