Introduction

By definition, transit oriented development (TOD) and public transit complement one another. The California Department of Transportation defines transit-oriented development this way:

“Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) is moderate to higher density development, located within an easy walk of a major transit stop, generally with a mix of residential, employment, and shopping opportunities designed for pedestrians without excluding the auto. TOD can be new construction or redevelopment of one or more buildings whose design and orientation facilitate transit use.”[1]
