TRB conducted a webinar on Thursday, March 16, 2017 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM ET that featured research from the Transit Cooperative Research Program
(TCRP)’s Report 187
: Livable Transit Corridors: Methods, Metrics, and Strategies. The planning method presented in the handbook was developed by studying more than 350 transit corridors throughout the U.S. It offers an operational framework for defining and assessing livability to provide clear guidance for corridor-level visioning and planning. A set of analysis tools was developed to identify corridor livability strengths and needs, and recommend paths to implementation.
This webinar will examine the potential for transit access, land use and transportation integration, and a stakeholder-driven set of assessment and implementation tools to improve livability in transit corridors.
This webinar has met approval by the American Institute of Certified Planners for 2.0 Certification Maintenance Credits.
Please note: There are no PDH credits offered for this webinar.
