Dr. Junfeng Jiao continues to share his research on transit deserts. He recently spoke with U.S. News and World Report for the feature story, “Stranded Without Transit.” This coverage comes on the heels of other great reports from KUT, the Austin American-Statesman, and others.
Dr. Jiao also co-authored an op-ed for The Conversation with Master of Science in Community and Regional Planning student Chris Bischak. Titled, “People are stranded in ‘transit deserts’ in dozens of US cities,” the article was picked up by Finance and Commerce, Smithsonian Magazine, Salon, the Chicago Tribune, and Houston Chronicle, among other outlets. Many of the articles feature the Urban Information Lab’s interactive map of “Transit Deserts in Major US Cities.”
