CTOD makes information on transit-oriented development (TOD) accessible to a broad range of audiences, and serves as a repository of best practices and ongoing TOD activities from around the country. We communicate through brief publications introducing TOD planning and implementation concepts; regular webinars on issues such as employment and transit, value capture, mixed-income TOD; presentations at major national conferences and locally hosted events; and respond to requests for information.

Regular Webinars

CTOD regularly hosts webinars to support the integration of the transportation, land use, sustainability, and housing fields. We partner with groups from around the country to host these webinars, in order to reach a broad audience. We bring together issue experts to present on the most innovative work from around the country.

As an example, here's the recording from the "Making Joint Development Work: the Federal, Transit Agency and Business Perspective " held Feb. 13, 2012:
