This 2-page research brief highlights the study that aimed to uncover whether Twin Cities transitways effectively connect low-wage workers with suitable job opportunities. It focused on the impacts of the Hiawatha light-rail line, which runs between downtown Minneapolis and its southern suburbs. Construction on the Hiawatha line began in 2001 and was completed in 2004. The study also examines whether households and employers have relocated to take advantage of benefits provided by transitways.
