About TOD 2021

2021 Global Summit on Transit Oriented Development is going to be held on May 22, 2021 (Time Zone London, UK). Transit Oriented Development has emerged as a response to rising urban population and congestion in traffic. It is the fast growing trend in making healthier lifestyle and higher quality of life with better places to live, work and play. A TOD relies on the principles of mixed uses, walk, shift, transit, densify, cycle, connect & compact that centered on high quality train systems. This makes it possible to live a lower-stress life without completely depending on a car for mobility and survival. Cities across the world are competing to confront with rapid uncontrolled urbanization. As per recent reports by United Nations, 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a number that is expected to increase to 66% by 2050. This substantial increase in urban population requires reshaping the real estate landscape and also to meet the high demand quality urbanisation by rail systems across the globe through Transit-oriented development (TOD).

2021 Global summit on Transit Oriented Development is the platform to find the key ingredient to the big question of what it takes to get your TOD right and to unravel best solutions by understanding the secret mantras in achieving a world class TOD!
