Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


As the United States prepares for the next fifty years of growth, many observers hope that transit-oriented development (TOD) will make regions more resilient in the face of rising fuel prices and demographic change. In some metropolitan areas, the number of households living within a quarter-mile of existing or proposed transit stations is already expected to double. In addition, competition among regions for federal funding to support new fast-rail systems has become increasingly fierce.1.
