TRANSIT-ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT IN THE SEATTLE, WA, USA, AREA

While existing transit-oriented development (TOD) varies in land-use mix, project density, and transit accessibility, most transportation planning professionals agree that TOD provides an opportunity to locate compact, high-density land uses within walking distance of existing and future transit services. TOD attempts to reduce the use of single-occupant vehicles and enhance transit investments by bringing potential riders closer to transit facilities. This article, the last of a series in this publication on TOD in the Seattle, Washington area, provides 4 examples of TOD projects underway in the Seattle-Tacoma region.
