Building more “livable” communities has been identified as an objective of the US Department of Transportation. Recognizing this, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) plans to develop measures of how well transit systems meet the needs of people in the communities they serve. Such metrics are required for evaluating the success of livability enhancement programs, and for identifying where these programs are needed. The objective of this project is to define national livability performance measures and to develop the data resources to be able to calculate these measures on an annual basis so as to track trends and progress. The scope of this effort includes both urban and rural areas with specific direction towards measures that will allow FTA to gauge the effectiveness of Federal transit livability efforts.
