Principle 4: Build Transit-Oriented Developments
Match land-use density and mix to transit capacity in a walkable environment.
Create diverse, mixed-use neighborhoods and districts with integrated affordable housing.
Increase the density of road networks with small blocks and human-scaled streets.
Prioritize walking and biking with ubiquitous safe, direct and comfortable routes.
