The cost of transportation plays an important role in residential location choice. Reducing transportation costs not only benefits the user but also improves the performance of the system as a whole. A direct impact of transit-oriented development (TOD) is the change in out-of-pocket costs for users, as well as the changes in costs of externalities and agency benefits. The prime mover for these changes is the shift in population when a TOD is built near train stations and the induced mode…

Optimizing Land Use Allocation of Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) to Generate Maximum Ridership
It was found that optimizing the design of the TOD can increase the number of daily LRT passengers by up to 55% and office workers constituted the highest number of transit passengers, followed by those working in hotels and commercial/retail and residential users.
Institute of Transportation Engineers Guidelines versus Actual Trip and Parking Generation for a Transit-Oriented Development in an Auto-Oriented Region
The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) guidelines serve as the most widely used reference for trip and parking generation estimates for any new development in the U.S.A. However, recent

Measuring Benefits of Transit Oriented Development
Transit-oriented development (TOD) in New Jersey is evaluated using a variety of methods and different outcome measures. Qualitative analysis focused on the perceptions of the benefits of TOD and any
Can Transit Oriented Developments Reduce Austin's Traffic Congestion?
Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) is expected to generate a long list of benefits, of which reducing car use and relieving traffic congestion are among the top. To what extent can TOD contribute to
Can Transit-Oriented Development Reduce Peak-Hour Congestion?
This paper presents a study of whether transit-oriented development (TOD) helps reduce peak-hour congestion, a topic of ongoing public debate. Applying conventional four-step travel demand modeling
Alternative Approaches to Modeling the Travel-Demand Impacts of Smart Growth
Abstract Four-step travel demand forecasting models were never meant to estimate the travel impacts of neighborhood-level smart growth initiatives like transit villages, but rather to guide regional
Transit-Oriented Development's Ridership Bonus: A Product of Self-Selection and Public Policies
Transit-oriented development is shown to produce an appreciable ridership bonus in California. This is partly due to residential self-selection—that is, a lifestyle preference for transit-oriented
