ED127 Transit-Oriented Development
Transit-oriented development (TOD) is an increasingly popular approach to sustainable community development through the creation of compact, walkable communities that provide a mix of affordable housing and retail centered around a transit station. According to the Center for Transit-Oriented Development, by 2030 over 15 million households will demand homes within walking distance of public transit and rail systems. TOD can help meet some of that demand. This course uses case studies and peer exchange with practitioners and leaders involved in local community-based TOD projects to help participants understand the value of transit-related development, identify challenges and develop the skills to plan a TOD project, including determining feasibility and sources of financing.
