Abstract [en]

Transit-oriented development (TOD) is a policy to design and develop dense, attractive and walkable urban environments that enhance the use of public transportation. In a broader perspective, TOD deals with synchronizing urban life - its growth and development, its everyday activities and mobility patterns - with public transportation systems. Urban development is a product of negotiation, a political struggle between actors and stakeholders, their visions and interests, and their powers to induce urban change. In the background of urban politics, social and physical factors limit the potential to develop or transform. In this study, this potential for urban development and transformation is analyzed for three neighborhoods along the Tunnelbana, a subway line in Stockholm, with the help of geographic information systems (GIS) software. Two development scenarios are explored: one with TOD applied, the other with it dominating as a policy.
