Transit-Oriented Development in the States
A new report from the National Conference of State Legislatures entitled "Transit-Oriented Development in the States" has been added to the Resource Center best practices database.

Topics covered include:
- An Increase in Demand for Transit
- Federal Support for Transit-Oriented Development
- State Support for Transit-Oriented Development
- Defining TOD
- Assembling Land For TOD
- Zoning and Density
- Catalyzing Investment in Existing Communities
- Funding TOD
- Solving the Last-Mile Riddle
- Safe Routes to Transit
- Public Bikesharing Systems
- Public Carsharing Programs
- Housing and TOD
- Using TOD to Advance Other Policy Goals
The report also includes case studies from Utah, Minnesota, New Mexico, Massachusetts and California.
