  19. 19. Conclusion<br />The central city is not disadvantaged by its geographic position in regional space. <br />Helping poor people gain access: strengthen transit in the long run; compact land-use development in the long run; easier availability of cars in the short run.<br />Gaining access to cars would shift vulnerable populations from the most-disadvantaged to an advantaged position in the regional geography.<br />
