As society finds it itself on the brink of new social, economic and political upheavals, a reconsideration of the make-up of regions is necessary. From time to time, these changes manifest as migrations from one line of thought to another.

It is the intent of this report is to note and link the connections between historic figureheads and contemporary proponents of regional form and its interconnectedness to transportation infrastructure. This report goes on to provide examples of barriers to modern implementation of regional transit-oriented development and also to provide case studies where positive interaction between local governments has resulted in regional forms and transportation networks that embody new solutions in a changing socio-economic and environmental constructs.
