What if people could access most of their basic needs on foot or in a single transit trip?
While planners and designers stress the importance of livability and engage in
land-use/transportation integration, little work has explored the potential of planning
for livability at the corridor scale.
We are pleased to announce the recent publication of "TCRP Report 187: Livable
Transit Corridors: Methods, Metrics, and Strategies
" by the Transit Cooperative Research Program, part of the Transportation Research
Join co-authors and moderator for this lively session:
Val Menotti, Chief Planning and Development Officer at the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)
district, will be the moderator.
* Christopher Ferrell, PhD
* Bruce Appleyard, PhD
* Matthew Taecker, AIA, AICP
The Handbook and its companion Livability Calculator
<https://www.livabilitycalculator.com/> tool were designed to help planners, policy
makers, and other stakeholders measure, evaluate, and improve transit corridor livability.
The most livable corridors provide an array of opportunities, which can be encouraged
through urban policy and inter-jurisdictional cooperation.
