Tidbit Tuesday | Vehicle accessability between Philadelphians who rent and own their own homes

On Tuesdays, the Mayor’s Office of Transportation & Utilities (MOTU) posts a map or graphic that tells a story about transportation or utilities in the City of Brotherly Love.

This week we took American Community Survey data (2013 1-year estimate) and calculated the number of Philadelphia householders who own their own vehicle by whether they own or rent their homes.   According to the data, approximately 20% of home owners do not have access to a vehicle and 48% of home renters do not have access to a vehicle.
