Station Area Typologies

Some transit stations are located in bustling downtowns at the heart of the regional economy; others are in residential neighborhoods where transit provides a convenient means for commuters to travel to and from work and other destinations. Some stations are located in areas that are experiencing rapid growth and change, while others are in more established, built-out neighborhoods where any change will be incremental. Every station area, whether existing or proposed, faces unique challenges and will require specially tailored strategies to create high-performing transit-oriented development (TOD) projects. However, many different types of station areas share similar characteristics. These similarities can help planners, citizens, and elected officials quickly and easily understand key planning considerations and what to expect in terms of the character, role and function of the places that will be created.
