Discover how Metro's Transit-Oriented Development Program helps spark vibrant downtowns and centers through public-private partnerships, investments and incentives in development projects near transit.
The core program activity is providing funding to stimulate private development of higher-density and mixed-use projects near transit. In addition, the program invests in "urban living infrastructure" like grocery stores and other amenities, and provides technical assistance to communities and developers.
Metro also acquires and owns properties in transit-served areas and solicits proposals from qualified developers to create transit-oriented communities in these places.
Who is eligible?
If you are a developer interested in partnering with Metro, review the program's investment criteria and contact Metro to determine your project's eligibility for funding.
In general, applicants for funding must be a willing and capable developer with site control. Proposals are evaluated against a set of competitive investment criteria to ensure they have the characteristics of exemplary transit-oriented development.
