In the context of recent welfare reform efforts, researchers have examined strategies for attracting jobs to inner cities, dispersing innercity residents to suburban jobgrowth areas, and creating transportation connections between inner cities and suburban jobgrowth areas. However, little has been done to estimate the extent of potential commute of nonworkers who are expected to become active workers as a result of welfare reform. This study attempts to predict the extent of nonworkers commute by using modeling techniques employed in labor economics. Data from the 1995 Nationwide Transportation Survey are utilized. Conforming to theoretical premises and logical expectations, I estimate that mean commute time of nonworkers is likely to be substantially lower than those currently working. Policy implications of the empirical findings are discussed.
