The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) continues to advocate and plan for transit-oriented development in the nine-county metropolitan Philadelphia region. Recent SEPTA station-area plans have been developed for regional rail stations in Lansdale, Thorndale, North Wales, Warminster, and Wawa in the Philadelphia suburbs, and Broad Street Line subway stations at Girard Avenue and Ellsworth-Federal in the city of Philadelphia. Those station plans are contained within three DVRPC studies: “Implementing TOD”, “Developing Around Transit”, and the soon-to-be-released “Transitioning to TOD”. Each study includes recommendations covering areas such as zoning, land use, comprehensive plans, access, and development opportunities. DVRPC will also soon publish a TOD summary report evaluating the status of plans, financing, and proposed and completed projects in the Philadelphia region.
