This study is an attempt to empirically measure livability to emphasize its role in community livability. Establishing these measures would enhance the practice and implementation of livability principles by various practitioners in the transit industry. This is in view of the difficulties faced in the past and presently by various transit authorities in incorporating the concept into their planning processes to better serve their communities.
