While there is a broad consensus that TODs induce additional ridership on the transit system, the actual net impact remains unclear. This project will seek to survey residents of TODs to determine how their trip patterns have shifted and to explore the attitudes, values and preferences in the choice of living adjacent to a transit station or stop. An additional task may seek to survey customers of TOD retail. The results of this survey should try to correlate TOD characteristics (size, distance from transit, type of transit, unit composition) with total transit ridership from the development, net transit ridership (i.e. how many new transit trips the development induced) and changes in transit parking demand.
