Service, clerical, and technical hospital workers,* like many people, use public transportation to commute to work every day. Without public transportation, many workers would not be able to find affordable means to get to work. This brief examines the use of public transportation among hospital workers in order to better understand the importance of public transportation for workers. In particular, it examines the overall use of public transportation and how that differs by race, hourly wage, and household income. Further, it examines the relationship between public transportation use and housing, financial, medical and food hardships.
