Transit Oriented Development (TOD) for Inclusive and Sustainable Rural-Urban Regions

Project description

Driving new transport solutions for rural–urban regions

Transit-oriented development (TOD) is a concept of sustainably managing urban growth. The aim is to expand green public transport ridership in order to reduce the use of private cars. Moreover, it is important to extend TOD to rural–urban regions (RURs) since most Europeans live in these areas and not just in urban cores. With this in mind, the EU-funded TOD-IS-RUR project will carry out an interdisciplinary and intersectoral expert-level training programme in analysing and improving TOD for RURs. Specifically, 10 early-stage researchers will be trained in developing and testing a novel, context-based approach for inclusive and sustainable planning schemes for RURs. The project will help in the formation of transport policies that are inclusive, innovative, smart, green, integrated and sustainable.
