Guide to Joint Development for Public Transportation Agencies

This Guide was commissioned by the Transportation Research Board through its Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP). The Guide’s over-arching purpose is to expand the successful use of joint development in North American transit systems—in the volume and variety of projects undertaken, the diversity of transit agencies participating, and the quality of outcomes achieved. The Guide is primarily geared to the needs and interests of US transit agencies. It is aimed particularly at agency leadership and at professional staff working as practitioners in joint development (JD) and the more encompassing field of transit-oriented development (TOD). Transit agencies in Canada will also find the Guide helpful and relevant, although its institutional elements are written from a US perspective. The Guide is not written solely or primarily for large rail transit agencies with robust JD programs; on the contrary, while the research team gathered a treasure trove of insight, information, and lessons learned from such agencies, the intended beneficiaries include transit systems spanning the full range of geography, technology, and ridership, including those in the early stages of joint development activity or contemplating it. Important secondary audiences include local and regional governments and private developers, lenders, investors, foundations, community development corporations, and other entities, both for-profit and non-profit, that are involved in joint development.
