New Jersey’s Home for TOD News

Published since 2005, the Transit-Friendly Development Newsletter is designed to keep municipal officials, planners, and advocates up-to-date on the potential for development and redevelopment around transit stations. This partnership between NJ TRANSIT and the Bloustein School’s Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center (VTC) at Rutgers University aims to enrich the TOD conversation in New Jersey’s diverse communities by highlighting what is happening in the state and around the country: best practices, model programs, legislation, and local problem-solving experiences.

In addition to the newsletter, we post the most up-to-date research from VTC, ranging from the benefits of TOD to its effect on housing values to guides to implementation, with a focus on New Jersey. To find out more about the researchers involved with this work and putting the NJTOD site together, click here.

We hope local leaders and the public find these articles and research of value we all strive to create livable, sustainable, and thriving communities. We always appreciate reader input, so send us your comments, criticisms, and ideas for future articles. 

NJ Downtown Conference Session

Downtown New Jersey and NJTOD.org partner on a biannual symposium series – TOD in Your Downtown. In continuation of this partnership, NJTOD.org is sponsoring the Disrupted Development session at the NJ Downtown Conference on Friday, January 22 at 12:00PM.

DNJ and its partner, NJTOD.org, would like to hear from you!

We will be conducting short (20min or less) video interviews.

Let us know about your work promoting New Jersey’s downtowns. We are interested in places, programs, and activities that helped promote and develop downtowns.

We are especially interested in efforts that incorporate transit-oriented development (TOD) principles.

Or talk to us about the issues affecting NJ’s downtowns and TOD in the state, such as: 


  • Accessibility
  • Affordability & Equity
  • Amenities &/or Programming
  • Connectivity within & beyond the TOD area
  • Environmental Conditions
  • Funding
  • Parking
  • Planning
  • Public Engagement & Support
  • Retail — during COVID and beyond

Or anything else you want to discuss!



Please note that we will be recording our interviews for use by Downtown New Jersey and NJTOD.org.
