Transit Oriented Development

JTA has been playing an integral part in helping create more “Green” focused communities by partnering with community developers to plan and build more developments around existing transit infrastructures. This partnership, known as Transit Oriented Development, or TOD, results in creating compact communities where people can get around by walking, biking or taking transit to local and nearby amenities.

Centered around high quality transit systems, TOD’s make it possible to have a higher quality of life without complete dependence on a car for mobility or survival.
