Transit Oriented Development
Stedplan has expertise in Transit Oriented Development (TOD). In the planning and design of urban centres, TOD plays an important role. It refers to the development of compact, high-density and mixed-use centres that are located around new or existing convenient and accessible public transit stations. This makes TOD a powerful strategy for smart city growth. By encouraging the use of public transportation, TOD can contribute to sustainable, environmentally friendly and energy-efficient cities. TOD can also be part of an economic strategy because it can act as a catalyst for revitalization, bringing new retail and residential investments, and connecting residents to jobs and services located throughout the region. Stedplan advises local and regional authorities about design, planning and strategy of TOD areas, corridors and networks.
