Executive Summary 

Our team worked with the Museum of Science, Boston to analyze transportation accessibility in the downtown region of Boston (Mass). Using a mathematical equation that we derived, we wanted to determine if quantifying accessibility to public transportation helped identify areas that need increased access to transportation. In doing so, we also wanted to identify accessibility differences between neighborhoods within downtown Boston based on economic differences and discern inequalities among individuals to reduce their transportation "carbon footprint" and the extent of their degree of choice dependent on demographic factors.
