Abstract

Using a linear and nonlinear perspective on time–distance relations, the AA. define a new pair of contrasting notions : monotonic versus nonmonotonic accessibility to investigate diverging commuting experiences. They demonstrate this idea by performing a place-based analysis of commuting data disaggregated by poverty status in the Denver metropolitan area. They find that (1) unexpected commuting experiences do exist and constitute a signification portion of commutes; (2) accessibility variations that are generally not anticipated by traditional place-based metrics; and (3) expected and inverted commuting experiences exist adjacent to each other
