Urban Strategies was retained to update Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation Transit-Supportive Guidelines, originally published in 1992.
These new guidelines are a distillation of transit-friendly land use planning, urban design and operational practices, drawing from examples in Ontario, elsewhere in North America and abroad. Their aim is to assist urban planners, transit planners, developers and others, working in communities of all sizes, in creating an environment that is supportive of transit and increasing transit ridership. The guidelines are organized into a series of topics, each of which contains strategies applicable to all community scales. The document also features best practice case studies, a glossary of terms, an index and a summary of resources and references.
