What is a transit corridor?

When planning for TOD, a transit corridor is best defined as the walkable areas around all of the stations along a transit line. Any transit technology can define a transit corridor – commuter or light rail, streetcar, trolley or bus. The TOD potential depends more on the design and quality of service than it does on the transit technology. Things to consider:

  • Line is "fixed” - provides certainty for developers and investors that transit service will not be moved to another corridor
  • Station Area walkability and bikeability
  • Presence of retail amenities near station areas
  • Local and regional housing market health
