|Ths search engine Google generates over two million hits for "transit oriented development." Most of these are about particular station-area projects, or about guidelines for station-area development. Our interest as researchers is the metro area, region-wide transportation system performance likely from TOD. Would TOD at ten, or even twenty transit stations in a new system make any difference in how much people drive their cars?|
