    This working paper is designed as a reference document for transportation planners and researchers interested in transportation affordability and related issues for low-income people. The first chapter reviews the research literature on transportation and low-income populations. Chapter Two describes ongoing research projects that will add to our understanding of transportation affordability issues. Chapter Three provides information on several transportation assistance programs for low-income people in the San Francisco Bay Area. The topics covered are outlined in detail in the Table of Contents. The Table of Contents can be used as an index for identifying relevant sections of text based on the topic of interest. This working paper is an initial step in the development of a research agenda on transportation affordability for low-income populations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Development of this research agenda is a collaborative effort of the Public Policy Institute of California and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. (Author abstract)

    This Research-to-Policy Resource List provides a comprehensive list of city universal preschool initiative evaluations and research in the Research Connections collection. To count as universal, a city's program must aim to eventually provide universal access to publicly-funded preschool for all four-year-olds using at least some city funds, even if it does not currently achieve universal access. Some well-known programs do not meet these criteria, either because they are the city-based implementation of a state universal preschool program (Tulsa, Oklahoma) or because they do not aim for universal access (Chicago's Child-Parent Centers; Salt Lake City, Utah). Cities with universal preschool programs were identified in recent reviews by the American Institutes for Research and the Rand Corporation, as well as in news reports. A number of city programs have not produced evaluations or research publications or are still in the planning or early implementation stages, including Cincinnati, Ohio; Cleveland, Ohio; Dayton, Ohio; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Seattle, Washington; and West...
