Abstract:

Transit-oriented development--mixed residential and commercial districts that allow residents to walk, drive or ride transit--can improve quality of life in urban areas and encourage more compact development. Transit-Oriented Development: Strategies to Promote Vibrant Communities offers guidelines for successful transit-oriented development projects and identifies a number of locations in Maryland where such development could occur.
