The National TOD Database

The National TOD Database is a project of the Center for Transit-Oriented Development. Intended as a tool for planners, developers, government officials, and academics, the Database provides economic and demographic information for every existing and proposed fixed guideway transit station in the U.S.
  • The Database includes 3768 existing stations and 843 proposed stations in 47 metropolitan areas, as of December 2009
  • Data are available at three geographic levels; the transit zone (the 1/2 mile or 1/4 mile buffer around the individual station), the transit shed (the aggregate of transit zones), and lastly, the transit region (aligns with the Metropolitan Statistical Area boundary)
  • Over 40,000 variables are derived from nationally available data sets including the 2000 Decennial Census, the Census Transportation Planning Package, and Longitudinal Employment Data
