Transit Oriented Development

Development at and around the system's transit stations is an
exciting element of the FasTracks program.  As the Denver region's
public transit agency, RTD plays an important role in the
implementation of Transit Oriented Development (TOD). TOD is
characterized by a pedestrian-oriented environment that allows people
to live, work, shop and play in places accessible by transit. The
primary benefits of TOD include:

  • Reducing sprawl and protecting existing neighborhoods
  • Reducing commute times and traffic congestion 
  • Improving environmental quality and open space preservation 
  • Encouraging pedestrian activity and discouraging automobile dependency
RTD's TOD mission is to help facilitate TOD opportunities that increase ridership or enhance transit investments throughout the District through station design and close coordination with local jurisdictions and developers. 
DRCOG and RTD jointly created the TOD Project Viewer
to provide an interactive map-based source of information about
development that is expected, planned, under construction or completed
within a half-mile of RTD's existing and planned transit stations. This information is planned to be updated on a quarterly basis.

To learn more about TOD, find links to additional research and
resources, get demographic data on the FasTracks corridors, and get a
listing of upcoming TOD events in the Denver region, visit the DRCOG TOD Web site.

If you have specific questions about RTD's TOD-related activities, please contact Bill Sirois at .
