Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is often advocated as a generic, ubiquitously applicable concept that integrates urban transport and land use systems, by combining a high level of public transport connection with high-density, mixed-use, cycling- and pedestrian-friendly developments, centred around a transit station.
There is already a significant body of knowledge on the concept and principles of TOD as well as the perceived effects to date However, the specificities of the Chinese context (e.g., the scale and pace of the urbanisation and motorisation process as well as the institutional arrangements around land development and transport provision) demand a more context-specific elaboration of TOD and what it can and does achieve. Guowei Lyu evaluatedsand applies theories, concepts, and methods from urban planning, geography, transport studies, and spatial economics to analyse the case of TOD in Beijing, China.
