How Transportation and Community Partnerships are Shaping America: Part I: Transit Stops and Stations

This booklet explores how people in communities concerned about livability are working in partnership with transportation agencies on locally-initiated projects and programs to create transportation systems that enhance places. This booklet explores how people in communities concerned about livability are working in partnership with transportation agencies on locally-initiated projects and programs to create transportation systems that enhance places. Transit facilities, whether a simple bus stop or a major train station, and transportation corridors, whether a main street or a boulevard, are natural focal points for communities. To view them as catalysts for strengthening community life necessitates a shift away from the way tranportation has traditionally been conceived. Using this more holistic, "placemaking" partnership approach, transit operators, traffic engineers, residents, merchants, property owners, city agencies, planners, architects, and developers, as well as community and faith-based organizations, are demonstrating that through these partnerships they can bring together the goals of transportation agencies and the liveablility goals of communities.
