DART Transit Oriented Development Policy

Section 1. Purpose

DART is the steward of a significant public investment which includes important real property assets. These real property assets can also be used to leverage the viability of the transit system and to add to its value to the community. Continuing expansion and maturation of the transit system along with federal, regional and local initiatives that direct and concentrate transit oriented development and urban infill around transit facilities enhance the value of these assets. DART seeks to work in close partnership with its member cities to identify and implement TOD opportunities. By promoting high quality Transit Oriented Development on and near DART owned properties, the transit system can attract riders and generate new opportunities to create revenue for DART, and environmentally sustainable liveable communities that are focused on transit accessibility.
