Transit Oriented Communities

Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) is a fast-growing community development trend that includes a mixed-use of housing, office, retail space and/or amenities integrated into a walkable neighborhood and located within a half-mile of public transportation. Transit Oriented Communities provide better access to jobs and housing for people of all ages and incomes. TOCs help to enhance connectivity for area residents and businesses, leading to safer accessibility to jobs, businesses, residential and commercial districts, and schools.


  • Reduce the number of household drivers.
  • Lower congestion, air pollution and greenhouse emissions.
  • Create walkable communities that accommodate healthier lifestyles.
  • Increase transit ridership and fare revenue.
  • Expand mobility choices that reduce dependence on the automobile.
  • Reduce transportation costs.
