Geographic Area Covered: Nine-County Delaware Valley Region, including the counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia in Pennsylvania; and Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Mercer in New Jersey

Abstract: The goal of this study is to inventory the region's rail stations to determine a short list of "Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Opportunity sites", in furtherance of the goals and policies of DVRPC's adopted Year 2025 Horizons long-range plan. While the region has over 340 fixed-rail stations, the majority of them have transit-adjacent developments (TADs). Transit-adjacent development is development that is physically near transit but fails to fully capitalize on its proximity, both in promoting transit ridership and as an economic and community development tool. Many of the fixed-rail stations in the region lack pedestrian and bicycle access, lack land uses that complement the station, such as consumer services, and lack building design and orientation that serve the rail user. Volume One details the study process, inventory selection criteria, TOD benefits and barriers, and recommendations for funding and implementation. Volume Two contains the 45 station area profiles, including information on access, ridership, level of service, land uses, and development opportunities. Volume Three presents in-depth case studies of five of the inventoried station areas in the region, as selected by the Study Advisory Committee.
