Transit connects people to destinations. The quality and character of walking and bicycling connections impacts quality of life.Transit riders walk or walk and bicycle during part of their trip. Planning for TOD needs to address the directness, design, and character of routes for pedestrians and bicyclists. If these routes are indirect, unsafe, or unpleasant, people will be less likely to use transit. Improvements to pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, however, can increase the desirability of using transit. Convenient and pleasant places to walk and bike help attract investment as desirable places to live, work, and shop.
