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: This study is an evaluation of progress towards transit-oriented development (TOD) at individual rail (and some bus) stations within the nine-county region. Progress can include a completed or in-progress TOD or related plan, a grant to study or implement TOD, development interest or involvement in the station area, and/or a proposed or completed TOD. Through a municipal survey, newspaper research and communication with pertinent local officials and staff, DVRPC attempted to gather data on any recent changes in and around the over 300 stations in the region. Results illustrated that the majority of communities responding to the municipal survey are supportive of TOD in both concept and implementation. Many communities have created a foundation for TOD in their neighborhoods by changing zoning ordinances, partnering with public and private agencies, remediating brownfields in the station area, and working with developers to encourage more appropriate site design.

Key Words: transit-oriented development (TOD), transit-village, transit supportiveness; SEPTA, Regional Rail, Market-Frankford Elevated, Broad Street Subway, AMTRAK, PATCO, NJ TRANSIT, River Line; mixed-uses, zoning, development potential.
