The research explores the costs and impacts of Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and addresses the rationale for designing transit-oriented neighborhoods.  It also documents the outcomes and the impacts of implementing such projects and examines the perspective of the TODs’ genesis, whether by a public agency, a developer or the community.  This assessment adds to the vast body of knowledge about TOD providing case studies of several sites around the United States.
