Call for Papers – Transit-Oriented Development @ 25

Journal of Planning Education and Research
Focus Issue Topic: Transit-Oriented Development @ 25
Peter Calthorpe’s book, The Next America Metropolis: Ecology, Community and the American Dream coined the term Transit Oriented Development (TOD) in 1993. 25 years later the term ‘TOD’ generates over 9 million hits on Google and 450,000 results on Google Scholar. This focus issue, both reflective and prospective, seeks articles that examine how the concept evolved and has affected the urban planning profession across the United States and the globe.

We would like papers that address the following topics:
• Evolution of TOD as a planning concept
• Travel behavior
• Affordable housing
• Real-estate values
• Community engagement
• NIMBYism
• Gentrification
• Environmental impacts
• Economic performance
• How TOD has become part of planning pedagogy
• Critiques of TOD
• Any other interesting topic that relates to TOD
We encourage authors to reflect on TOD’s lessons, implications, prospects, and larger societal concerns.
