About eTOD

What’s eTOD?

Transit-oriented development, or TOD, is a great tool to develop our cities around public transit assets, rather than around automobiles. Equitable TOD, or eTOD , is transit-oriented development that keeps equity in mind every step of the way, from design and planning to construction and operations. It strives to avoid or stop the displacement of community residents and local businesses, and to close the gaps that exist in socioeconomic indicators between communities where the majority of residents are people of color and majority-white communities.
