Linking Transit Agencies and Land Use Decision Making: Guidebook for Transit Agencies

This guidebook was developed to help transit agencies better address the connections among transit, land use planning, and development decision making. The guidebook promotes improved transit and land use decision making by providing transit agencies with the tools to be more effective at the decision-making table. The tools, which build on successful transit and land use decision-making experiences throughout the United States, will help transit agencies self-assess their readiness to participate effectively in the land use decision-making process and help improve their interactions with key stakeholders in the process, including local governments and developers. Questions explored: What can transit agencies do to become more meaningful participants in land use decision making? When and how is it worthwhile for transit agencies to get involved?
