Transit-Oriented Development, But Make It Equitable
How approaches to TOD can be updated to address racial and socioeconomic disparities
The Washington region has been a leader in transit-oriented development (TOD) for decades by building dense housing and commercial space in close proximity to transit stations–with plans for more such development in years to come. But too often, we see racial and socioeconomic disparities in who can afford to live in and who benefits from access to these places.
Across the country, more and more regions are adopting “equitable transit-oriented development (ETOD)” frameworks, bringing more intentionality to the work to rectify these disparities. What does that mean, and what can we learn from this approach? What efforts are currently underway in the Washington region to make access to housing, jobs, and other benefits of TOD more equitable? Greater Greater Washington has been exploring eTOD through an ongoing limited series. This webinar is a chance for readers to learn more directly from experts featured in the series, and will include time for audience Q&A.
