Forming Partnerships to Promote Transit-Oriented Development and Joint Development

Numerous transit agencies have worked since the 1970s to encourage transit-oriented development and to pursue joint development programs or individual joint development projects. Generally, these projects refer to the same type of transit-supportive development; the distinction lies in who is sponsoring and who is involved in the project. The guidance provided in this document draws on that experience and provides a range of practices and techniques to consider. The practices and examples presented in this document are organized into three main sections: guidelines for defining internal agency policies and processes for pursuing joint development and transit-oriented development; guidelines for jointdevelopment processes and partnerships; and guidelines for achieving public support to establish a shared vision for transit-oriented development.
