Transit-Oriented Development

Transit-Oriented Development

Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) involves integrating land use and transit planning to promote sustainable urban development forms. It is a multidisciplinary planning and design strategy to ensure compact, mixed-use, pedestrian and two-wheeler friendly, and suitably dense urban development organized around transit stations.

TOD CoP focuses on: i) increased coordination and collaboration across the operational teams working on TOD; ii) aggregation, exchange and production of TOD knowledge across the WBG through in depth events such as Technical Deep Dives, training course such as the TOD Corridor Course, and a rich website and shared drive; iii) support to the operationalization of TOD concepts in Bank operations by pooling requests for consultants, sharing terms of reference, carrying out peer reviews and highlighting good practice documents; iv) learning from good international TOD practices and facilitate their sharing through partnering with international partners.

A Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is a mixed-use community within an average 2,000 Ft walking distance of a transit stop and core commercial area. TODs mix residential, retail, office, open space, and public uses in a walkable environment, making it convenient for residents and employees to travel by transit, bicycle, foot or car.

TOD's Objective is a great opportunity to make changes in the world, especially in LMI countries. The first pillar needed is changing mind by training, learning, adapting and sharing good practices.

The question of public transit is still worrying in African countries ... This working group could be a starting point for decanting this situation in my country ...
