As a result of transit-oriented development (TOD), communities have become more walkable and liveable with easy access to high quality transport stations. However, the discourse around transit-oriented developments in India focuses on densification and value capture, which are necessary but incomplete for the Indian context. This webinar will address the major challenges and lessons from the implementation of a TOD approach in India.
