A new report recently released by the Center for Transit-Oriented Development (CTOD) offers strategies for the City of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to tap into its TOD potential. The report focuses on three areas of investment – infrastructure, new development, and building the capacity of community groups. Stations with the best potential for TOD have been identified and prioritized. Funding sources have also been identified, along with suggestions for small-scale, low-cost connectivity improvements such as pedestrian pathways and improved station signage.
Pittsburgh is set to take advantage of development opportunities around its existing rail lines. Many of the neighborhoods along the city’s transit routes already have many of the characteristics of TOD neighborhoods, and therefore have a high potential for minimal or low-cost redevelopment.
