Deficiencies in Public Transit Accessibility of Healthcare Facilities in Chicago

Transportation barriers to healthcare access often result in missed or rescheduled appointments, delayed care and a poorer, overall, management of healthcare needs. Prospective patients who depend on public transit for mobility are dis-proportionally affected because of deficiencies in the supply of public transit services. This study will examine whether such deficiencies exist and how they are distributed in the Chicago metropolitan area.
