The major objectives of the study are to: Define transit-oriented development and its successful components; describe the potential benefits of TOD; examine the status of implementation of TOD in the U.S. and California; identify the major barriers and impediments to the wider implementation of TOD; identify what is working well, as well as the need for additional resources to overcome barriers; and, finally, develop a set of potential strategies and activities that the state of California may implement to facilitate the broader implementation of TOD in this state.This process has resulted in the publication of a final report, "Statewide Transit-Oriented Development Study: Factors for Success in California", that contains up-to-date and practical information on TOD. Separate from the final report, a Technical Appendix volume contains: an overview of TOD in America; detailed information about twelve TODs in California; information on funding sources; and other resources. In addition, the study team produced a special report that examines parking in TODs.
