This publication reaffirms FTA's commitment to meet the mobility needs of the American public and highlights some of the efforts underway across the country. The Livable Communities Initiative is demonstrating that transit can provide an important means of strengthening the link between transportation and communities. This booklet describes and illustrates some of the ways the transportation planning, development and implementation processes are producing community-sensitive transportation facilities and services. It describes how the concepts and objectives of the FTA Livable Communities Initiative are incorporated into the ongoing planning, programming, project development, and project implementation processes. Examples are used to illustrate these phases, as well as operations and maintenance aspects.
