Great Corridors, Great Communities: The Quiet Revolution In Transportation Planning


This is a part of a three-part series:

  • A Citizen’s Guide to Better Streets: How to Engage Your Transportation Agency
  • Streets as Places: Using Streets to Rebuild Communities
  • The Quiet Revolution in Transportation Planning: How Great Corridors Make Great Communities

This title is also available as a free PDF download. 

In 2008, PPS partnered with the American Association of Retired People (AARP) to publish three books on streets and transportation. The publications are a joint effort of PPS’s “Building Community Through” campaign, which seeks to transform transportation policies and practice that currently prioritize moving people and goods over creating walkable, healthy and sustainable places, and AARP’s “Livable Communities” initiative, which aims to ensure affordable and appropriate housing, supportive community features and services, and adequate mobility options for aging Americans. In conjunction with the series, PPS will present a series of webinars for AARP volunteers and the general public.

The third in the series, Great Corridors, Great Communities, describes how planning transportation within the context of a larger corridor can benefit both mobility needs and community quality of life.
