In partnership with the Civic Mapping Initiative, NHSA found that only 40% of Head Start locations are within walking distance of a fixed route transit stop. An additional 30% are in areas served by public transit, yet their closest stops are beyond walking distance for a toddler. These 30% of centers mean hundreds of opportunities to shift stops by less than half a mile and meaningfully impact childcare access for low-income families.
Watch this webinar about transit agencies and Head Start centers working together to best serve low-income families in their communities.
