Travel Time And Housing Price Maps: 390 Main St.

These maps show a comparison of communities with home values between $250,000 and $750,000 that are accessible by auto and transit in a 45 minute evening commute from (to pick a random address) 390 Main Street, San Francisco. The travel time data is modeled from a 2005 transit network. The home values are as of 2000 and are expressed in year 2000 dollars. The home value estimates were created by ABAG by combining ParcelQuest real estate transaction data and real estate tax assessment data. This information can be generated for any Bay Area address using an interactive mapping tool available under Maps at
