Americans consider housing affordable if it costs 30% or less of their income. However, calculating housing and transportation affordability together offers the true cost of housing based on its location by measuring the transportation costs associated with place.
Abogo is a revolutionary website that shows you how transportation impacts the affordability and sustainability of where you live, or would like to live. It measures the money an average household would spend getting around in your neighborhood, including commuting and errands, as well as car ownership and use.
It also calculates the CO2 emissions generated by a car traveling around your neighborhood, measuring the true cost and impact of where you live, and showing you how living in other neighborhoods can fit into your budget.
To learn more about how sustainable your neighborhood is, or if you’d like to move into a greener neighborhood, visit abogo.cnt.org for more information.
