For this seminar Professor Lisa Aultman-Hall, University of Vermont, will present numerous hypotheses for the short life of the buzzword "livability" in the transportation community. The story of livability, as a broad federal transportation policy endeavor, also dictates some important lessons for what needs to come next in a comprehensive federal approach to renewing our transportation system. To advance us beyond our current system to a new paradigm of programs that advance sustainable, reliable and equitable mobility, new federal policy (and its associated buzzword) must convincingly address both urban and rural communities.
