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.

The Role of Open Data in Sustainable Transport

The Role of Open Data in Sustainable Transport

Today, innovative solutions in transport are mainly driven by digital applications. Data, collected by apps themselves or by third parties, is often publicly available and can be used through interfaces in other apps.  Governments and organisations generate data in the form of documents, databases, records, transcripts, etc., but historically this information has not always been available or open to the broader public. Opening data to the public can drive internal efficiency, spark community engagement and fuel a civic tech ecosystem.

Knowledge wiki - Resilience & Adaptation in the transport sector

Knowledge wiki - Resilience & Adaptation in the transport sector

An efficient transportation system can play an important role towards making a city more resilient against shocks and disasters, many (but not all) of which are induced by climate change. A resilient transport system can be achieved by designing, developing and maintaining transport infrastructure that is able to withstand and recover from shocks, and by creating an adequate institutional framework.

The Wiki on resilience & adaptation in the transport sector provides information on resources, implementation projects and research on resilience in the transport sector, with a focus on adaptation towards climate change.
