The National TOD Database is a project of the Center for Transit-Oriented Development. Intended as a tool for planners, developers, government officials, and academics, the Database provides economic and demographic information for every existing and proposed fixed guideway transit station in the U.S.
CNT’s eTOD Social Impact Calculator provides a broad swath of data that's important to developers, households, neighborhoods, and communities. This data includes parking, jobs, public transportation, greenhouse gas emissions, building purchasing power, and bikesharing.
The pattern of residential moves by income in rail transit neighborhoods is examined in Effect of New Rail Transit Stations on Income Distribution of Nearby Residential Moves, a report from the National Center for Sustainable Transportation at the University of California at Davis. This report seeks to analyze moving patterns in the Los Angeles metropolitan area to develop policies around transit-oriented development and its potential displacements.
CNT works at the intersection of environmental sustainability, social equity, and technology—with particular attention on creating efficient and affordable solutions for low-income communities and communities of color. CNT works to expand and improve transit, pedestrian, and bike systems that anchor amenity-rich, walkable communities. Lowering dependence on cars reduces household transportation costs and frees up space to create places where people want to live, work and play.
