This city rating tool helps users find opportunities in housing, jobs and public transport-based commutes. The Opportunity Score from Redfin gives cities a score that judges American metropolitan areas based on the availability of jobs paying $40,000 a year or more, within a 30 minute public transport commute.
Redfin's Opportunity Score was created as part of the White House Hackathon and indicates the important role public transportation plays for families who are unable or unwilling to rely on driving to get to work. The city rating tool also takes house pricing and rental rates into account when offering its scores.
This comprehensive analysis means the tool will appeal to a wide variety of age groups.
