TOd Potential

TOD potential is often overlooked when agencies plan transit networks.

High levels of transit ridership depend on the development of supportive land use and circulation around the station. The potential for supportive development can be maximized or precluded by the route of the transit line and the locations of stations.

Not all line options and station locations are equal and each may accomplish a different objective, such as lower construction cost or greater TOD potential. To maximize the public’s return on transit investment and increase transit ridership, TOD potential should be a primary consideration in all stages of transit system planning.

Integrated Transit and Land Use
Framework to the next level and
will be a great benefit to both
the planning and transportation
