Development of Transit Livability Assessment Data

This project works with urban and rural livability measures recommended by other University Transportation Center (UTC) studies. It develops data resources and display tools as a test of recommended metrics and to understand issues involved in collecting and maintaining the geo-coded data needed for this kind of place-based analysis. The overall goal is to be able to define quantifiable aspects of livability that can be used as performance measures to evaluate outcomes of transportation and land-use planning policies and programs. Transit livability metrics will be demonstrated in a geographic region or regions selected for data availability and for the applicability to a variety of communities. A final report with recommendations for structuring data collection and maintenance to support annual reporting for tracking progress will be delivered.
