    Transit oriented development information

    Does anyone know where I could find information on the percentage of TOD projects which are considered successful.

    I guess success could depend on a number of things such as increased tranisit ridership, decreased congestion, decreased number of vehicles per person, more compact development, or even increased tax revenues from rising land values.

    I do not know if what you are looking for is here, but here is a list of links to mostly transit related research for a commuter rail study I did: http://eclogiselle.com/solano/links.html

    The best one I know is Forest Hills, Queens.

    Started in the 'Teens, built mostly in the Twenties in a Tudor style, continued into the Fifties.

    Worth a google.
