Planning and Policymaking for Transit-oriented Development, Transit, and Active Transport in California Cities
This presentation will describe results from a two-year research project for Caltrans on local policymaking in California for transit oriented development (TOD), transit, and active transport. The presentation will describe how patterns of policymaking were found to vary depending on city type, measured by regional location, population size, median income, racial breakdown, access to high quality transit, and political leanings among other key characteristics considered.
