Overview

Learn how to leverage creative tools and partnerships in support of building TOCs

For many communities, buses remain the primary mode that connects the majority of people to quality schools, jobs, and healthcare. Because of this, transit agencies and communities are closely examining their land-use policies along corridors and around bus stops to ensure that they maximize the benefits of the existing transit network.

This session will explore how successfully planning for sustainable, livable communities around bus-based transit can lead to increased mobility, more jobs, and greater support for transit overall.
