Transit-oriented development in California

Doug Suisman joined development and transit specialists on a panel to discuss transit-oriented mixed-use development in California. On the panel, part of a conference organized by the California Studies Association and held at Loyola Marymount University, Suisman raised the question of whether Bus Rapid Transit could catalyze transit-oriented development as well as light rail projects. He presented some of the firm’s work on L.A.’s Metro Rapid system, and on the proposed bus transit center and associated town redevelopment in Marina, California.
