RTA publishes community guide to TOD access and parking
The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) has published "Access and Parking Strategies for Transit-Oriented Development" as a resource for municipal officials looking for innovative strategies to support multi-modal access to their transit stations and TOD areas. While providing automobile parking options in TOD areas is important, this guide focuses on assessing multi-modal access strategies and places a priority on pedestrian, bicycle, and transit access. The RTA has also produced a presentation (also available on-line) that municipal staff or others may use to explain the principles of the Access and Parking Strategies Report. The presentation summarizes the main points of the report and provides talking notes for the presenter.
