Transit Oriented Development Performance Assessment Towards Low Carbon Development: A Case Study of Tokyo Xiaoya Song, Tianqi Xia, Haoran Zhang, Zhiling Guo, Hiroshi Kanasugi, Xuan Song, Ryosuke Shibasaki


A multitude of efforts towards low-carbon transportation development foster concentration strategies around reducing vehicular emissions. Extensive literature is looking for strategies linked to how the built environment might be improved to reduce GHGs together with vehicular transportation, which reveals the importance of coordinating the balance of high-density urban areas development for low-carbon transportation. In this research, we focus on the integrating both transit and development in TOD areas. We aim to contribute to constructing an interaction network between TOD areas, and combine the PoI data to provide a refined method for analyzing the stability of integrated development of urban functions and traffic intensification which could help provide strategies to vehicular emissions.
