Would You Move to Transit-Oriented Development? How about for $12k?
Ariel Schwarz of Fast Company understands why they might do that:
"...people who live closer to their work spend less money and time commuting, employers get the benefit of reduced parking costs and "better on time and work performance", and the city gets revitalized neighborhoods and a wider tax base. And theoretically, the region sees less traffic congestion and air pollution."
But, she writes, the implementation seems ripe for abuse.
