Abstract

This study examines the correlation between development of public transportation and increased access to health care as well as increased secondary graduation rates and increased workforce health and productivity. The study explores whether increased investments in public transportation in rural and urban areas will provide greater access to available local health care. If access to health care is improved, will school attendance and productivity also increase? Through an analysis of extant research and publication, this study looks to correlate better access to health care, increased graduation rates and higher job productivity.
