Transit Oriented Development: Regenerate Mexican Cities to Improve Mobility

Government policies and national land guidelines in Mexico have contributed to the expansion of Mexican cities. From 1980 to 2010 the land area of major cities increased 6 times causing population density to decrease by 67%. In addition, car usage in Mexico tripled from 1990 to 2010. This document argues that policy change is necessary to promote transit oriented development (TOD) and sustainable mobility. It looks at Mexico's history of urbanization including urban planning, housing policy, and costs. It then covers the benefits of TOD and how to promote TOD at the federal level. Case studies in TOD from Copenhagen, Hong Kong, and Denver are provided.
