Abstract: This article draws on data for Los Angeles to argue that effective transportation programs for welfare recipients must consider both the distinctive characteristics and patterns of employed women and the constraining burdens of children and other household responsibilities. The failure to do so will limit the effectiveness of these programs and greatly increase the likelihood that recipients will remain poor.
