Livability and Affordability
When a community values accessibility, livability, and affordability for all citizens, mobility
management programs become an absolute necessity. Cost savings due to car-free or car-lite lifestyles include reductions in all kinds of auto-related expenses, from fuel to insurance to maintenance to parking. Affordability of a neighborhood depends on the combined costs of housing and transportation.
Mobility management programs also increase social mobility for the “travel‐ disadvantaged” and give seniors the option of aging in place. Increasing multi‐modal accessibility allows a community to be more diverse. Increased mobility, especially in walkable communities, may result in increased community connectivity and volunteerism.
