The monograph “Transit Oriented Development: how to make cities more compact, connected and coordinated” derives from the work carried out by the IDB, MDR and IDOM on Transit Oriented Development (TOD) in Brazil. The main objective of the publication is to present recommendations for the application of TOD systems in the context of developing countries. The publication includes detailed research to design, analyze and understand Brazilian legal, financial and institutional frameworks, as well as map limitations and opportunities to implement TOD systems, based on lessons learned from national and international cases.
