SEPTEMBER 7-8, 2011 • AUSTIN, TEXAS
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The Conference on Performance Measures for Transportation and Livable Communities took place September 7-8, 2011 at the Omni Austin Hotel Downtown in Austin, Texas.
Transportation is a key element of livable communities. Developing and applying appropriate performance measures to transportation and livability is critical to ensuring that intended federal, state, and local goals and objectives are being met. This conference addressed the current state-of-the-practice with performance measures for transportation and livable communities in urban, suburban, exurban, and rural areas. Current research, projects and initiatives were highlighted and future research needs were discussed.
The two-day conference included keynote speakers, plenary sessions, breakout sessions, and poster presentations on topics related to performance measures for transportation and livable communities. The conference helps advance research in the field of livability performance measures and helps agencies such as state departments of transportation, metropolitan planning organizations, transit agencies, and other groups to develop and use appropriate performance measures that address transportation and livability goals.
