The transit village, centered around both suburban and urban rail transit stations, not only encourages transit ridership, but also embraces goals of increased neighborhood cohesion, public safety, and community revitalization. This groundbreaking book by two of the nation's transit experts provides the first comprehensive study of this exciting new trend in community planning. It contains detailed case studies of emerging transit villages in the United States, including Pleasant Hill and Fruitvale in the San Francisco Bay Area, Ballston and Bethesda in the Washington D.C. area, and the Mission Valley stations in San Diego."@en ;
