      Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Standard 2.1

      Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Standard 2.1

      The TOD Standard is a powerful tool to help shape and assess urban development. It focuses on maximizing the benefits of public transit and non-motorized mobility while placing the emphasis firmly back on the users: people.

      The Standard outlines eight core principles of urban design and land use, each supported by specific performance objectives and easily measurable indicators, or metrics. Together, they promote safe, balanced and vibrant neighborhoods around stations; short and well-connected pedestrian and cycling networks; densities that ensure strong customer bases for local services and public transport; and minimal car traffic and parking interference.

                  Infographic – A comprehensive approach for road safety: The example of Germany

                  Infographic – A comprehensive approach for road safety: The example of Germany

                  About 3,400 people die every day in road traffic accidents around the world. A further 50 million people are injured every year. To reduce injuries and fatalities, many proven measures are available – from better infrastructure to safer vehicles, better enforcement & education and improved emergency medical services. Our infographic illustrates the comprehensive approach that Germany has taken as a response to sharply rising fatality rates since the 1950s - comprising a bundle of measures that can inspire policymakers and experts elsewhere.

                    SUTP Module 5d - The CDM in the transport sector

                    SUTP Module 5d - The CDM in the transport sector

                    Since the advent of Kyoto Protocol in 2005, many countries, both developed and developing, have embraced the concept of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) in order to reduce their carbon emissions. This module discusses the viability of sustainable transport projects to be qualified under the CDM mechanism which will thereby benefit from GHG offset sales. The module also presents a case study on Bogotá’s BRT system TransMilenio, the first officially registered CDM project for transport.
