Transit Oriented Development, or TOD is development that is close to good transit (buses or trains) that allows more people to have access to goods and services that can meet their daily needs. It can be mostly housing with a coffee shop and a drug store on the bottom. It can be offices and retail. The defining characteristic of TOD is that it makes it as easy to walk to meet your needs as it is to drive.
