Transit Oriented Development

Oakland, California is showing big cities that transit-oriented development is possible. After a decade of planning between public transportation officials, developers, and a neighborhood organization, the Fruitvale Transit Village opened in 2004. It includes commercial space, affordable housing units, and a health clinic. Instead of gentrifying the area, the Fruitvale Transit Village helped turn around a struggling neighborhood while keeping people of color in the community.
