Access & Parking Strategies for Transit-Oriented Development

There are over 400 transit stations and 330 bus routes in the Regional Transportation Authority's (RTA) six county region, resulting in 630 million transit trips per year. A large part of using mass transit is getting to the transit. The RTA created the Access and Parking strategies for Transit-Oriented Development guide as a resource for municipal officials looking for innovative strategies to support multi-modal access to their transit station and TOD area. While providing parking options in these areas is important, this guide focuses first on assessing multi-modal access strategies as a whole and placing a priority on pedestrian, bicycle and transit access. Ideally, a mixture of these strategies should be applied to achieve an optimal balance of access modes and available parking. Each station and TOD area is unique and not all strategies will be applicable to all communities—select those that are most applicable to your community's needs. This presentation highlights the main points of the guide; in depth details and case study examples can be further explored by reading the full guide.

This presentation was created by the RTA as part of their continued support for TOD and in the pursuit of achieving the agency's Strategic Priorities.
