The Framework for Successful Transit-Oriented Development 

When well-planned and effectively implemented, Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) can advance efforts to create livable, thriving and sustainable cities. 

Around the world, urban population growth challenges city leaders to create livable, thriving and sustainable communities and places. Addressing housing needs, congestion, decarbonization objectives and other pressing concerns requires practical yet visionary thinking. 

Effective localized response requires multifaceted collaborative efforts between key public-sector stakeholders and private-sector facilitators. Well-structured partnerships can give rise to new funding resources and fresh ideas to create human-centric cities for years to come. 

An upfront perspective of the TOD process with an evolved approach to investment and land-use development decisions can bring about urban environments that meet 21st-century infrastructure needs and quality-of-life expectations. With proper planning, collaboration and a solid business case, TOD provides the means to realize visions of places where people want to live and work as our cities continue to evolve.
