iTOD: Fostering Innovation + Industry Near Transit
In today's economy, employment-focused TOD continues to gain prominence as planners and politicians seek to increase ridership, expand the tax base and create living wage jobs. The integration of transit and industry, however, brings a host of new questions and challenges. Who are the industrial users of the future? What are the new building prototypes? How can we continue to efficiently accommodate freight access and movement while introducing new modes (transit, pedestrians, bicycles)? How can we increase the accessibility and density of industrial districts without driving away companies and jobs? Come hear how cities and regions across the country are promoting innovation and industry by proactively addressing these complex issues.
