Our TTOD Regional Forums convene stakeholders from Gateway Cities and surrounding communities to discuss transit and development assets and needs for addressing opportunities and challenges. This Initiative builds on our 2018 research report on Transformative TOD and statewide conversations about the future of housing, transportation, and economic development. The report is available at https://massinc.org/research/the-promise-and-potential-of-transformative-transit-oriented-development-in-gateway-cities/. Co-sponsored by:
