Bold New Rules to Deliver Transit-Oriented Communities

Lunchtime Forum


CalTrain Station

Building housing, jobs and services near quality transit can increase the Bay Area's ability to accommodate new residents, improve conditions for vulnerable communities, and support mobility that isn't reliant on a private car—a concept known as a “Transit-Oriented Community” (TOC). In January, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) introduced a proposal for a new regional TOC policy, aiming to support new housing across income levels, add new jobs, and support sustainable transit access and protection from displacement. With MTC's TOC policy expected to be finalized in September, join us to discuss where this effort landed and what it will take for jurisdictions to comply.
