Best Practices For TOD Strategies & Legislation

Documents detailing transit-oriented development efforts in Seattle and Dallas have been added to the Resource Center's best practices database.

  • Sound Transit TOD Program Strategic Plan describes Sound Transit’s vision, goals and strategy for creating transit-oriented development on and around its stations, transit centers and park-and­-ride lots. This plan was adopted in September 2011.
  • DART Transit Oriented Development Policy was originally adopted in 1989 and amended in January 2008. DART's  transit-oriented development policy seeks to use the district's real property assets to leverage the viability of the transit system and to add to its value to the community. By promoting high quality transit-oriented development on and near DART owned properties, the transit system seeks to attract riders and generate new opportunities to create revenue for DART, and environmentally sustainable liveable communities that are focused on transit accessibility.
