SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT


The Transit Oriented Development Certification is a national project evaluation and endorsement program to promote sustainability by highlighting exemplary projects showcasing TOD best practices. The Certification program allows developers, transit agencies, design firms, municipalities, and others to submit projects for official review and rating.

Eligible projects range from infill and
building conversions, to clusters of building that are part of a larger project, to entire new neighborhoods and large-scale developments.

Projects are judged based on how well they meet the spirit, principles, and best practices of Transit Oriented Development, and specifically by how many of the 8 TOD Elements are met as outlined on the How it Works page. Projects that meet the criteria become Certified and recieve one of the Stars of Excellence TOD Seals:  3 Stars (our highest rating), 2 Stars (second highest rating), and 1 Star (third highest rating).
