Abstract: In recent years, transit agencies have come to view agency support for Transit-oriented development (TOD) as a promising strategy to address declining ridership levels and the prospect of decreasing public funding. This report identifies strategies that SEPTA can employ to enhance its support for TOD in Greater Philadelphia. This document summarizes the information DVRPC has gathered through literature review, research, and interviews and is designed to serve as a resource that can help SEPTA and its local partners strengthen the connections between transit, land use planning, and development decisions.

Key Words: Transit-oriented development, TOD, SEPTA, joint development, land use, development, Federal Transit Administration (FTA), real estate, value capture, TRID, design guidelines, replacement parking, legacy deeds.
