transit supportive design
Transit Supportive Design

Many aliases:

TOD: Transit Oriented Development

TOC: Transit-oriented Communities

Walkable communities

Pedestrian-oriented communities

Livable cities

transit supportive design1
Transit Supportive Design

What do we mean by this?

Or: what does a transit supportive community look like?

transit supportive design2
Transit Supportive Design

For communities of all sizes

Walkable, pedestrian-oriented *500 metres*

Higher density

Mixed use, mixed modes

“Street as living room”: amenities, frontage

Complementary road network

Pedestrian connections

Think in corridors, keep it flowing:

Avoid “peninsulas of development”

Try not to isolate major destinations

integration bc transit
Integration: BC Transit

Transit Future Plans / Service Reviews

Implementation plans

Local plan review, participation

Development referrals

transit future plan
Transit Future Plan

Assesses challenges and opportunities

Existing transit system, OCPs, RGS, other plans

Future population, employment and travel trends

Describes the future

Envisions public transportation network in 25 years

Creates a transit network based on layers of service types

Describes priorities, infrastructure and investment needed

Seeks to increase links: land use and transit investment

Seeks to engage, inspire stakeholders, decision makers, public

service review
Service Review

Assesses challenges and opportunities

Existing transit system, OCPs, RGS, other plans

Future population, existing employment and travel trends

Describes the future

Creates shorter and longer term options, different service types

Describes priorities, infrastructure and investment needed

Seeks to increase links: land use and transit investment

Seeks to engage, inspire stakeholders, decision makers, public

implementation plans

Created as funding approved

Determines required details

Detailed routing, schedules, bus stops, marketing, training, operational needs

Chance to reconnect with and reinforce:

System performance

Land use reality / changes

Community plans
