This paper explores the role of intracity connectivity across and within cities in MNEs’ location decisions across the value chain. Drawing from geography and transport studies, we argue that the importance of intracity connectivity depend on workers' and job characteristics (age, education, teleworking opportunities). Different degrees of intensity of these characteristics imply that intracity connections are key for MNEs engaged in low knowledge-intensive activities, whereas they do not necessarily attract high knowledge-intensive activities. Relying on data from 21,888 FDIs located in 69 cities worldwide, we confirm these predictions and reveal intermediate patterns in R&D activities, due to limited teleworking opportunities.
