Abstract

In 1998, Ride On, Montgomery County, Maryland's bus system, extended the span of service on eight bus routes as part of its Access to Jobs program. Their goal was to link low-income areas with the transit network of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. By surveying the riders of these late night and early morning bus trips we were able to evaluate these extensions to determine how dependent peoples' employment is on Ride On's extended operating hours.
