GUIDE TO TRANSIT CONSIDERATIONS IN THE SUBDIVISION DESIGN AND APPROVAL PROCESS

Traditionally, transit operators have found it difficult to provide cost-effective, high quality public transportation services to modern subdivisions. The reasons for this lie partly in the lack of consideration given to transit during the subdivision design and approval process. This study was undertaken in response to that issue. It is intended for a wide audience including transit managers and planners, land use planners, land developers and policy makers. It attempts to demonstrate how the subdivision design and approval process can be made more "transit-friendly" by applying a wide range of simple and practical techniques to produce common benefits. A companion report, entitled "The Role of Transit in the Subdivision Design and Approval Process," reviews major problems in current practices and recommends strategies for improving transit's role at provincial policy, municipal and subdivision planning levels.
