Abstract

When cities put affordability at the heart of their transit oriented development, they add an “e” to “TOD.” eTOD, or Equitable Transit Oriented Development, is oriented towards the people most likely to use transit the most: immigrants, people of color, zero-­vehicle households, renters, and low and middle income households, by ensuring that existing affordable housing along the corridor is preserved and that new affordable housing opportunities are created to serve these groups. If Austin’s Project Connect, and the development that surrounds the new transit stations are oriented towards these core riders, the resulting transit oriented development should be both high performing and equitable.
