Abstract

Proponents of the spatial mismatch hypothesis argue that job decentralisation harms low-income residents of central cities because of barriers that limit their access to suburban labour markets. The paper uses an urban equilibrium model of spatial mismatch to analyse the impact of commuting subsidies on the welfare of low-income, central-city households with restricted mobility. It seeks to determine how effective such subsidies are at reducing the welfare impact of spatial mismatch
