Transit-oriented development: Beyond the hype
from By Lucy Wallwork
Transit-oriented development is a concept that chimes with trendy "New Urbanist" ideals of vibrant, walkable neighborhoods. First uttered by San Francisco-based urbanist Peter Calthorpe in the 1980s, it may not yet be a household term, but it is rapidly gaining prominence in cities across the U.S. and beyond its borders. The TOD concept revolves around making transit hubs into hubs for not only switching from bus to train to bike, but also for land-use intensification.
