Abstract: This document, Developing Around Transit: Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Plans for SEPTA Broad Street Line Ellsworth-Federal, SEPTA R5 North Wales and SEPTA R2 Warminster, grew out of the work done on Linking Transit, Communities, and Development: Regional Inventory of Transit-Oriented Development Sites, published in 2003. The Regional Inventory determined a priority list of "Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Opportunity Sites," in furtherance of the goals and policies of DVRPC's Destination 2030 Long Range Plan. Forty-five stations were chosen out of a universe of 340 as having the most potential for TOD. Three stations were chosen for more in-depth study, in South Philadelphia, North Wales Borough, and Warminster Township. Recommendations included in this study cover such areas as zoning, land use, comprehensive plans, access, and development opportunities. The study is oriented toward asset-based plans that build from the existing strengths of each community.

Key Words: Transit-oriented development (TOD), access, zoning, TOD overlay district, land use, development opportunities, station concierge, site design, design guidelines, traffic calming, access management, transit revitalization investment district (TRID), streetscapes, SEPTA, Broad Street Subway, Regional Rail R2, Regional Rail R5, Warminster, North Wales, Ellsworth-Federal, development opportunities
