The Hidden Cost of Living in the Suburbs: Transportation | Sustainability | Fast Company

Some of the cost benefits of living in a city are obvious–walkability, easy access to public transportation–but the high price of housing and other amenities often overshadow any benefits. But GOOD points us to a tool from creative think tank CNT showing that it’s actually more expensive to live in many suburbs and exurbs once transportation costs are taken into account.

CNT’s tool analyzes 337 metro areas covering 161,000 neighborhoods and 80% of the U.S. population. The overwhelming result: It’s cheaper or just as cheap to live in cities when transportation is factored in.
