The Role of Livability 
3
Livability is about tying the quality and location of transportation facilities to broader opportunities such as access to good jobs, affordable housing, quality schools, and safe streets. 
Livable communities improve the quality of life in urban, suburban, and rural communities by promoting principles and projects that integrate land use, transportation, housing, and conservation of open green space and natural resources.
“Livability” is dependent upon the 
vision articulated by the residents and 
other stakeholders of a community. 
One Size Does Not Fit All! 
The U. S. Department of Transportation has made livable communities a high priority.
