JTA Launches U2C Transit Oriented Development Pilot Study

Jacksonville, FL. - The Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) is studying opportunities for transit-oriented development (TOD) along six corridors planned for the Ultimate Urban Circulator (U2C) project through a new TOD pilot study. 

TOD provides compact, walkable, pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use communities centered around transit stations. This makes it possible to live a lower-stress life without complete dependence on a car for mobility. The ability to walk, bike and take transit to your desired destinations across the city improves our health, economy and environment.

The Ultimate Urban Circulator (U2C) Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Study is funded through the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Pilot Program for TOD Planning. The purpose of this FTA program is to examine ways to improve economic development and ridership; foster multimodal connectivity and accessibility; improve transit access for pedestrian and bicycle traffic; engage the private sector; identify infrastructure needs; and enable mixed-use development near transit stations.


Community input is essential to planning transit-oriented development around proposed stations. How can TOD make your community (even more) wonderful? Let us know what you think about study findings and recommendations for your neighborhood.

Our first round of virtual public meetings is coming up and will focus on specific neighborhood corridors:
