Federal transportation policies and programs can have a significant impact on the creation of local equitable transit-oriented development (eTOD), as we detail in our new report, Navigating Federal Transportation Policy. These policies and programs generally provide several funding and technical assistance opportunities that can support eTOD. Furthermore, a wide range of policies and incentives that do not explicitly address eTOD can support or detract from conditions that make such development possible.

Los Angeles: Final Stop for the Millennial Trains Project

In Los Angeles, government is struggling with two interconnected issues: Adequately provide homes and services for a growing number of its residents, and leveraging investments in public transit in order to address worsening traffic congestion. Enterprise Community Partners and Abt Associates assisted the city in creating and implementing a Transit-Oriented Consolidated Plan (ConPlan) which integrates and maximizes transit, community, economic and housing development investments. The ConPlan is innovative in its approach in twinning transit and housing resources. It also serves as a great model for other cities struggling with these same issues - it’s the first in the nation to adopt a coordinated, place-based approach with a focus on equitable transit-oriented development.

Field Notes: 6 Emerging TOD Themes in Boston’s Fairmount Corridor

I'm halfway through my Rose Fellowship and I'm at a point where I reflect on what I've learned so far about Transit Oriented Development (TOD) along Boston's Fairmount Line and what I'll be spending the second half of my fellowship doing: continuing to provide design support for the three Community Development Corporation (CDC) partners that make up the Fairmount Collaborative. Through my participation in a number of projects, workshops, installations, and meetings, six key themes have been repeating themselves as successful ways to do TOD along the Fairmount Line which runs through several extremely different neighborhoods and which can be applied to TOD projects elsewhere.
