Southwestern Pennsylvania municipalities can capitalize on the presence of transit in their communities. How does your community ATTRACT investment to help make viable and sustain transit INVESTMENT? What are the factors that drive successful transit oriented developments? How can you best utilize your community’s current assets to make TOD a reality? Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission’s Future Investments in TOD (FIT) tool is designed to help figure it out.

FIT is designed for local elected and appointed officials, community planners, transit agencies and developers to help objectively assess a community to determine if a site is suitable for TOD, by helping communities develop a framework for site planning. This program is an encore performance of an LGA “learning laboratory,’ featuring classroom instruction and a field case study.
