Here is an interesting tool from the U.S. Departments of Housing and Transportation. “My Transportation Cost Calculator” allows you to calculate your Location Affordability Index by entering basic information about your family’s income, housing, cars, and travel patterns. The customized estimates can give you a better understanding of your own transportation costs, how much they would differ in other locations, and how much they are impacted by individual choices, allowing you to make more informed decisions about where to live and how to get to work.
