This colorful 24-page “picture book” lays out in easy-to-read format how shifting demographics and the changing real estate market have opened up an unprecedented window of opportunity for transit-oriented development.

The book explains what TOD is, how it benefits communities, and how it can be an important affordability strategy for regions. It references our national TOD market study, includes two brief TOD case studies, and discusses the Affordability Index developed by the Center for TOD.

In sum, it explains all the reasons that TOD is a sustainable, low-cost solution to a host of problems ranging from housing affordability to traffic congestion to global warming. The text consists of PowerPoint-style slides with bulleted information, brief explanations, photos and captions.
