Abstract: In the Twin Cities metropolitan area, significant long-range transit planning activities have been ongoing since the late 1990s. By 2030, the region is expected to have a network of fourteen transitways converging on the Minneapolis and St. Paul downtown areas. This project seeks to fully capitalize on the opportunities offered by transitways, by testing forward-looking policy options that enable the effective integration of transit, land use planning, and economic development. The overarching goal of this research project was twofold: 1) to sensitize and prepare policymakers for risks and rewards of various future land use and transit scenarios; and 2) to develop best practices in regional land use and transit planning for promoting economic growth and social equity.
