The Council’s Guide for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) highlights key ideas about TOD and shows how these ideas have been put to work within the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

TOD is moderate to higher-density development located within easy walking distance of a major transit stop, generally with a mix of residential, employment and shopping opportunities designed for pedestrians without excluding the auto. The Council’s guide includes:

  • A description of key TOD elements.
  • A discussion how how they might work in different urban and suburban settings.
  • Profiles of 16 TOD projects in the Twin Cities.
  • A section on “lessons learned” and links to other resources.
