In the United States, transit oriented development (TOD) is now recognized as a critical element in the planning, development, and execution of transit projects. Recent legislation has been designed to streamline the approval processes for new transportation projects, focus more on safety, and establish new programs to advance critical freight projects.
The TRB Transit Cooperative Research Program's TCRP Legal Research Digest 56: Joint Development Agreements Using FTA Funds or FTA-Funded Assets aims to clarify the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) assisted joint development process and attempts to separate public perceptions (and misperceptions) about TOD from reality. It is an update to TCRP Legal Research Digest 12:The Zoning and Real Estate Implications of Transit-Oriented Development.
Appendix C incudes sample model agreement forms, developed from Washington Area Transit Authority’s Office of Real Estate and Station Planning Templates.
