Description
This webcast introduces the concept of Transit Oriented Development (TOD), which is a walkable, high-density, compact, mixed-use form of development typically focused within close proximity of a transit station. The course focuses on TOD social, economic, and environmental implications in terms of transit ridership, property values, congestion relief, pollution reduction, community place making, and other aspects of transportation and urban policy. This course also addresses potential negative consequences of TOD including trampling neighborhood character, gentrification, and increasing urban sprawl and concludes with snapshots of successful TOD case studies.
