Transit oriented development: Making it possible in a low density city
MetadataShow full item record
This report identifies urban design guidelines from a Transit Oriented Development (TOD) perspective of a potential site in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Transit Oriented Development is characterized as developing a mixed-used neighbourhood in a community which is frequently serviced by public transit. In Nanaimo, bus transit service is frequent but there are certain elements of urban design that the City lacks. This report is developed to identify those urban design elements in the form of a Design Guidebook. The Design Guidebook could be used by local planners, developers, and transit professionals in helping them to make land use planning decisions that better support the integration of transit into existing communities.
