This study assesses job growth around new transit stations across California. It finds that, on average, no such growth occurred and points to the need for active and coordinated planning, to maximize transit investments and increase ridership.

This research was supported with funding from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, as part of the California 2025 project on the state's future, and the David A. Coulter Family Foundation.
