Description

Transit-oriented development (TOD) has emerged as a powerful, effective way to integrate land use and public transit. TOD done right links smart growth and sustainability with higher capacity rail or bus transit services. This linkage takes place in the environs of the rail passenger station or the bus rapid transit stop. TOD concentrates workplaces, residences, and supporting retail services within convenient walking distance of rail or bus rapid transit service. In doing so, TOD brings customers to public transit services as well as creates vibrant, mixed-use communities. There are many challenges in creating successful TODs. These include building effective public-private partnerships, ensuring multi-modal TOD access for the "last mile" and beyond, "right-sizing parking", and balancing private and public uses to create a unique place identify.
