          Transit Oriented Development
Through Transit Oriented Development (TOD), communities encourage higher-density residential and commercial development near bus lines, streetcar routes, and train stations.  This proximity increases the likelihood that transit services will be better used by the public.  Such increased usage, in turn, makes the construction and operation of transit easier for governments to finance.
