Description :
This paper estimates the effects on homeowners’ happiness about public commuting and other residential realms of a transport im-provement that altered the residence–station distance for some households, whilst leaving others unaffected. It is found that better rail access not only provides sizeable happiness about public commuting to Beijing homeowners, but also affects their happiness in other residential realms. This finding adds to the evidence that public investment has an important role to play in influencing homeowners’ living experience.
