This report in the Transit Strategies Series explores transit-oriented development (TOD). TOD is land development located near transit stations or stops that includes a mixture of housing, office, retail and/or other amenities integrated into a walkable neighborhood. At its most basic, TOD is a mixed-use community that encourages people to live near transit services and reduces their dependence on driving. The most effective TODs are located less than a half-mile (or 10-minute) walk from a transit stop or station. Beyond just development near transit, TOD is development that strives to give people choices in how they travel, minimizing the impacts of traffic and creating a sense of community and place.
