NJTOD.org (formerly known as the Transit-Friendly Development Newsletter) is New Jersey’s online resource for up-to-date information on the creation of vibrant communities around transit stations and stops. We explore the potential for and practice of development and redevelopment in station areas, commonly known as Transit-Oriented Development (or TOD). A partnership between NJ TRANSIT and the Bloustein School’s Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University, NJTOD.org enriches the TOD conversation in NJ’s diverse communities. We highlight what is happening locally and around the country and communicate best practices, model programs, legislation, and local problem-solving experiences.
Recent articles showcase ways to increase vitality in public spaces (Creating Public Spaces for Transit-Oriented Communities and Public Spaces Add Vitality to Transit-Oriented Communities) and highlight three communities that are leading the way (Fanwood: A NJ Model of TOD Eighteen Years in the Making, New Brunswick Transit Village: Groundbreakings and Breaking New Ground in “Hub City”, and After Flood Protections, Bound Brook is Reborn). Be sure to also check out our weekly review of TOD news.
NJTOD.org is where you can find the latest in Rutgers TOD research, ranging from the benefits of TOD to its effect on housing values to guides to implementation, always with a focus on New Jersey.
