GLRPPR Sector Resource: How Transit-Oriented Development Can Help Get America to Work

Title:
How Transit-Oriented Development Can Help Get America to Work

Abstract:
This paper sets out the importance of investing in economic development strategies that focus from the earliest planning stages on equity and opportunity for low-income workers. We will outline some of the conditions that enable communities and investors to design thriving societies and help break down traditional silos of community development. Finally, we will discuss why integrating transit and community development is not just good social policy but also smart investing.
