Federal Way Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Assessment Methodology

For its Federal Way Link Extension project, Sound Transit assessed the relative degree to which 21 potential station options could support TOD. These options ultimately were narrowed down to three. 

Using the four criteria illustrated in our infographic — multi-modal access; existing land use, and land-use plans and policies; market support for development and redevelopment; and land availability — the agency was able to communicate its decision-making process during its extensive stakeholder outreach program.
