TOD Policy Expansion

As a steering committee member of Elevated Chicago, part of the national SPARCC initiative, we are proud to announce the expansion of the City of Chicago’s existing Transit Oriented Development (TOD) policy to more than 20 high-ridership bus routes along eight major corridors across the city, including Ashland Ave, Western Ave, and Chicago Ave. Thanks to the advocacy of community groups such as LUCHA via the Elevated Chicago platform, Chicago will be the first city to expand TOD to bus corridors. This is a major leap ahead for creating and preserving affordable housing, especially in areas of opportunity with access to jobs, schools, parks, and transit.
