Transport Research Board - TRB Webinar: Livable Transit Corridors


2017-03-16 14:00 - 16:00 (UTC)
TRB will conduct a webinar that features 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. At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
    -Understand what livability is and how it can be encouraged through transportation/land-use integration along transit corridors -Understand how to use the Handbook and Calculator in TCRP Report 187 -Apply the tools for a stakeholder-based process to establish corridor-wide goals and strategies
