Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is a strategy for developing residential and commercial areas in places that are already accessible by public transit.
Achieving sustainable and equitable TOD in the MAPC region requires varied strategies. Defining these strategies requires a detailed understanding of factors such as land use, demographics, and development plans of existing station areas.
