Transit-oriented development, or TOD, is a type of community development that includes a mixture of housing, office, retail and/or other amenities integrated into a walkable neighborhood and located within a half-mile of quality public transportation. At Reconnecting America, we believe it is essential that TOD creates better access to jobs, housing and opportunity for people of all ages and incomes. Successful TOD provides people from all walks of life with convenient, affordable and active lifestyles and create places where our children can play and our parents can grow old comfortably.
Reconnecting America (@reconnecting) and its partners in the Center for Transit-Oriented Development were out at Rail~Volution in Washington, DC, Oct. 16-19. A full list of their workshops and seminars appears in the right sidebar.
