“Transit-Oriented Development in the States” Report

20121220TODinUSThis new report from the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL) takes a look at state legislative action to define Transit-Oriented Development (TOD), plan for and fund TOD projects, “provide ‘last-mile’ transportation solutions to get to and from a transit stop, and a number of other states’ strategies to encourage TOD.”

The NCSL is a bipartisan research organization that serves as a forum for public policy ideas, while also working to promote the effectiveness of state government. The report was developed in response to growing TOD efforts across the country, citing 30 U.S. metropolitan areas where new transit lines were constructed in 2012. A variety of TOD-related issues are tackled in the report, including zoning, density, housing, funding, and even car- and bike-sharing programs.
