TCRP 16: Transit and Urban Form Volume 2 - Guidebook and TOD Case Studies
TCRP Report 16 presents the results from Project H-1, An Evaluation of the Relationships Between Transit and Urban Form. The research team was under the direction of Parsons Brinckerhoff Quade & Douglas, Inc., and included Dr. Robert Cervero, Howard/Stein-Hudson Associates, Inc., and Jeffery Zupan. Six reports were produced by the research team; a decision was made by the project panel to publish four of the six reports as a two-volume set, in the regular TCRP series.
A Guidebook for Practitioners (Volume 2, Part III)
This report offers guidance to communities on patterns of development that encourage alternatives to the automobile for work and nonwork travel. It summarizes the key relationships between transit and urban form, outlines the role of transit in regional and corridor planning, and discusses the principles and tools for station-area planning and development.
Public Policy and Transit-Oriented Development: Six International Case Studies (Volume 2, Part IV)
This report uses case studies to determine the public policies and institutions necessary for transit-supportive development to occur. The case studies include three cities with rail systems and three with high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes or exclusive busways. The six case study cities are Houston, Texas; Washington, D.C.; Portland, Oregon; Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; Ottawa-Carleton, Ontario, Canada; and Curitiba, Brazil.
