Moving Beyond the Automobile: Transit-Oriented Development


  Summer 2011
Volume 7, Number 1

In February, StreetFilms launched its new video series, Moving Beyond the Automobile with a 3-minute look at the TOD efforts in Hudson County. Part visual handbook, part best practice guide, Moving Beyond the Automobile is designed to help policy makers, advocacy organizations, teachers, students, and others explore ways in which the needs of pedestrians, bicycle riders, and transit users can be better served. This first installment of a 10-part series examines redevelopment near the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and along the Jersey City waterfront and features interviews with Kate Slevin, Tri-State Transportation Campaign, Peter Kasabach, NJ Future, Vivian Baker, NJ TRANSIT, and Robert Cotter, Jersey City Department of Planning. Overall, the series explores ways to reduce overdependence on the automobile, including: bicycling; car sharing; congest pricing; highway removal; traffic calming; pricing parking and removal; road diets; and bus rapid transit.
