Traveler Response to Transportation System Changes. Chapter 17 - Transit Oriented Development

This chapter focuses on the transit oriented development (TOD) land use strategy and its transportation impacts, organized along three dimensions that significantly characterize TODs: regional context, land use mix, and primary transit mode. New as well as synthesized research is presented, including suggested "TOD Index" indicators to describe development project "TOD-ness." This chapter is complementary with Chapter 15, "Land Use and Site Design," and Chapter 16, "Pedestrian and Bicycle Facilities." This chapter will be of interest to transit, transportation, and land use planning practitioners; educators and researchers; and professionals across a broad spectrum of transportation and planning agencies, metropolitan planning organizations, and local, state, and federal government agencies. Several case studies are presented.
