Problem DescriptionTransit-oriented development (TOD) is the design of transit with real estate development to foster walkable and economically vibrant places. TOD may also include an equity/inclusiveness focus to encompass targets for affordable housing, reduced displacement impact, etc. Though TOD as a concept is well established, the decision making process is complex in terms of the number of factors to consider and specialist knowledge to understand impacts. These resources have been developed to track these interconnected factors for decision-making.
TOD implementation involves not only local/regional government decision making, but close coordination with real estate developers and transportation professionals to balance project needs.
