In this paper, it is found that polycentric development is associated with differentials in suburban and urban commute trip times. The effects of housing availability and prices on the residential locational choices of those working both in urban and in suburban employment centers are investigated. Locational choices are stratified by occupational class and type of center. There is a significant segmentation in housing choices among workers in fast-growing suburban centers
