“Transit Oriented Development and Its Impact on Level of Service of Roads & METRO: A Case Study of Mumbai Metro Line-I”

The study proposes a methodology to evaluate the impact of planned Transit Oriented Development (TOD) along new METRO rail project. Using this methodology, the applicability of TOD principles using vertical development in rapidly developing metropolitan city, Mumbai, in India is explored. The methodology focuses on prediction of mode choice behaviour of people before implementation of planned TOD. Moreover, indirect impacts of TOD like, financial feasibility, decrease in fuel consumption and travel time for planned year, 2036, are evaluated. Findings of this study show that TOD can be an effective tool for achieving the sustainable development in highly congested metropolitan cities of developing country as even though density is increased within Transit Influence Area (TIA), the congestion on roads will not be increased.
