The book is intended to be a comprehensive guidebook or a manual on Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) for readers, especially from developing countries. The author argues that even though TOD started in the developed countries, we need to understand the concept of TOD from the perspective of developing countries that are culturally, demographically and economically different. The book works on that principle and explains the characteristics of TOD, discusses selected case studies to learn from, clarifies various misconceptions related to TOD, brings together various technical methods to plan for TOD and explains their advantages and disadvantages. In the end, it throws light on the validity of TOD in the fast-changing urbanscape of smart cities and smart mobility.
