TRANSIT SENSITIVE LAND USE DESIGN GUIDELINES

Previous work identified a set of guidelines that can be used to create situations where transit/pedestrian and bicycle facilities are used as a basis for land use design. These are shown in Table 1.

There are three major guideline categories: (1) Administration and Policy, (2) Systems Planning, and (3) guidelines related to the Design of the Transit Corridor Districts. The systems planning and district planning guidelines each have three parts: land use, access to transit, and transit operations guidelines. Systems planning deals with the overall location of transit corridor districts, access to public transit and general rules for the operation of transit services. District level planning relate to the way in which land uses P> are arranged within a transit corridor district, how access is provided and how transit services are accommodated. Policy guidelines are not site specific and relate to how things are implemented, who has input in the process and how services and areas are managed. <
