Transit-Oriented Development

  Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) typically can be described as the design of an area that maximizes access to many kinds of activity and multiple modes of transporation.  To encourage transit ridership or other alternative means of travel, TOD often includes a mixed-use residential and commercial footprint that is designed around a neighborhood center or a convenient and accessible transportation station. 

  TOD enhances a community in many ways and fits with strategies of Albany 2030 and the Climate Action Plan.  Live in a safe and sustainable area where you can easily walk, bike or bus to your destination, reducing the impacts of high traffic volumes and emissions.  Increase your choices in housing and (re)development opportunities that aim to reduce City sprawl and conserve open space.  Strengthen private investment and employment opportunities as area foot traffic and neighborhood density increases.

As the City, in partnership with CDTA, invests to further expand the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) network, TOD has become a significant decision-making consideration.  Most recently, the City completed a TOD Guidebook that identifies benefits of a TOD in Albany and key study nodes (Clinton & Broadway; Central & Quail; Central & N Manning/N Allen) for pilot overlay zones.
