MOD is the next generation of TOD.By linking a neighborhood’s commercial center to the surrounding one-mile area with complete streets and protected bikeways (cycletracks), this design approach enables people to walk, bike, or take transit for day-to-day shopping and work trips.
MODs result in fewer and shorter auto trips. Less money is spent by households on gasoline and sent out of the community to multi-national energy corporations. The savings are available for the local purchase of goods and services needed by neighborhood residents.
The MOD is a fundamental building block in the development of a resilient district, city, or region.
