💥 What’s the Big Deal: 

TOD is a strategic approach to urban planning that integrates public transportation, housing, and amenities within a compact area. TOD can offer multiple benefits for Hawaii, such as:

          • 🌱 Reducing traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions by encouraging the use of rail and other modes of transportation besides driving.
          • 🏡 Increasing housing supply and affordability by creating mixed-income and mixed-use developments near transit stations, with incentives for developers and residents.
          • 🤝 Enhancing quality of life and social equity by providing access to jobs, education, health care, and recreation for people of all ages and backgrounds.
