Transit Oriented Development

Description: Transit oriented development (TOD) refers to a method of regulating land use that concentrates commercial and residential growth around transit centers in order to maximize access to transit and encourage the use of non-motorized transportation. TOD can be described as development, generally within half a mile of a transit station that provides sufficient densities, mixes of activities and convenient pedestrian linkages to support significant transit ridership.


This chapter of the Innovative Land Use Techniques Handbook provides an overview of TOD and presents model ordinance language.
