Transit oriented development: how to make inclusive cities

Transit-Oriented Development, or TOD, is an approach to designing “complete neighbourhoods” in which people can connect efficiently to services and activities through quality public transport, walking and cycling. By integrating land development and transport planning, TOD puts people and the environment at the centre of urban planning.

The TOD website

This platform brings together resources to support city decision-makers and practitioners in applying universal principles from the TOD Standard to create healthier communities for babies, toddlers and caregivers.

Complete Neighborhoods for Babies, Toddlers, and Their Caregivers

This supplemental guide to the TOD Standard explores best practices in using the 8 core principles of TOD – walk, cycle, connect, transport, mix, densify, compact and shift – to measure the performance of cities and neighbourhoods, and nurture more healthy and vibrant urban environments.

These resources are developed by ITDP in partnership with the Bernard van Leer Foundation.
