The purpose of this series is to give you a first-hand look at transit-oriented development as local cities, residents, developers and planners in the San Francisco Bay Area bring this concept to life. Whether you call them transit villages, walkable neighborhoods, or transit-oriented developments, the general concept is the same: when you cluster homes, services and shops around transit, you create a synergy that results in a whole host of benefits for the community and the region. You’ll hear more about what makes transit-oriented development – also known as “ TOD” or “T.O.D.” - work throughout our tour, as we talk to the people that are making it happen.<br><br><br> This series is sponsored by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and the Association of Bay Area Governments. <br><br>
