From the folks who brought us "walk-score" comes "transit-score", a tool for consumers that includes custom commute reports, and a home + transportation costs calculator so you can quickly understand how much the location of your home and workplace impacts your daily life.
As noted by Benjamin de la Pena, Associate Director at The Rockefeller Foundation, “transportation costs are often the second highest expense for working Americans, and Transit Score will give families more control over their household budgets by providing them with information about their transit choices.”
The work, funded in part by The Rockefeller Foundation, also enables third parties to add public transit information to their websites easily.
