Urban Institute

How to get to school is an important issue for families who want to send their children to schools outside their neighborhood and for education policymakers seeking to implement school choice policies that mitigate rather than exacerbate educational inequality. This report analyzes travel times between the homes and schools of nearly 190,000 students across five large U.S. cities that offer a significant amount of educational choice: Denver, Detroit, New Orleans, New York City, and Washington, D.C.
