Transit + MPO = Partners for Livable Communities

MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act) implementation has given public transportation a greater role in transportation planning and programming decisions. How can transit, MPOs and cities foster decision-making partnerships to attain the best mix of integrated mobility solutions? What are the most effective strategies (including scenario planning) for advancing livable and sustainable communities?
