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.
