Transit-Oriented Development

 

Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) is a style of planning and development that encourages pedestrian activity with a mix of higher density employment, housing, and commercial land uses within a half-mile walking distance of a passenger rail station. TOD encourages the choice to bike or walk in combination with transit use through a well-designed, accessible built environment and connected network of bike and pedestrian facilities that reduces automobile dependence.

About TOD at NCTCOG

NCTCOG supports TOD in the region through a combination of implementation assistance, data collection, and training events.  The TOD Implementation Group was created to provide technical assistance for regional partners related to education, planning, and research for TOD projects.  NCTCOG also established a TOD Task Force in partnership with three local transit agencies and staff members from local governments currently served by rail transit.  The Sustainable Development Funding Program has also awarded approximately $124 million to support TOD infrastructure and planning projects throughout the region  (2001 - 2010).
