Learn the latest in planning for transit-oriented development

Agencies around the country have often sought to foster transit-oriented development (TOD) efforts that aim to concentrate housing and jobs around high-capacity transit stations. Recent initiatives, however, are beginning to focus on TOD as a method for community-building through the concept of transit-oriented communities. This can be a key strategy for connecting disadvantaged populations to jobs and essential services, and alleviating fiscal pressure on cash-strapped jurisdictions all while revitalizing economically stressed areas. Hear from these panelists as they discuss their experiences in TOD. Perspectives range from older, fairly well-established systems where some development has already grown around transit, to younger systems looking to capitalize on newly constructed lines. Topics of discussion will involve the partnerships and coordination necessary to plan for TOD, planning in station areas, and other challenges associated with ensuring a TOD's success from day one.
