Moving Beyond the Automobile: Transit-Oriented Development

For the first chapter in Streetfilms' Moving Beyond the Automobile series, we're taking a look at transit-oriented development, more commonly known by the acronym TOD.

Streetfilms headquarters is a short train ride from some great TOD success stories taking shape along a stretch of New Jersey's Hudson River coast. Across the river from NYC, transit-oriented development has been booming for the last two decades, and transportation options are as diverse as you can get. The Hudson-Bergen light-rail, multiple ferry lines, PATH, NJ Transit commuter trains, and buses provide plentiful service, while in some areas car ownership is as low as 40 to 45 percent.

This series is made possible by funding from The Oram Foundation's Fund for The Environment & Urban Life.
