6th International Transportation and Economic Development Conference
Transformative Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) in Massachusetts Gateway Cities
Dan Hodge, of Hodge Economic Consulting, recently presented research authored with MassINC’s Ben Forman on transit-oriented development (TOD) in Massachusetts Gateway Cities at the 6th International Transportation and Economic Development Conference on June 7.
Addressing the conference in Washington, DC, Hodge addressed the benefits that TOD can to bring to Massachusetts by calculating its real-world impacts—from increases in MBTA commuter rail ridership to the reduction of the state’s carbon footprint. In the attached presentation, Hodge and Forman outline a strategy for state and local governments to invigorate the long-neglected mill towns and usher them into a new era of economic prosperity.
