Transit-oriented development (TOD) in the Bay Area faces extraordinary opportunities, as well as equally extraordinary challenges. These current and future transit hubs have the potential to accommodate thousands of transit-accessible jobs and residents, but they also run the risk of creating immense instability and upheaval for the communities in which they’re located unless affordability for all is a primary consideration. What lessons can we learn from TOD projects that are already completed or underway? What can best practices from elsewhere in the country teach us about how to produce transit-oriented developments that strengthen communities? Come learn about how we can create equitable TODs around the region.
