Our Issues

ITDP staff include experts on a number of key issues in urban development. Our staff are available to speak about the following topics:

  • Bus Rapid Transit: an increasingly popular, and often mischaracterized, mode of public transit, ITDP has established itself as a lead advocate for high-quality BRT worldwide.
  • Transit-oriented Development: ITDP has developed strong definitions and metrics to evaluate and promote compact, higher density, mixed-use, walkable developments near transit. ITDP has experience promoting TOD in both developing and developed urban settings.
  • Bike-share: Using data from bike-share systems around the world, ITDP has evaluated what makes a successful system and can speak to bike-share planning and design, business and financial models, and global trends.
  • Cycling and Walking Infrastructure: ITDP works to place greater emphasis on non-motorized transport. ITDP can speak to proper bike lane design, the needs of pedestrians, and the important of assuring safe and equitable transport for all.

  • Global Transport Policy: ITDP is an active participant in international discussions on climate and transport policy (e.g. GEF, Rio +20) and can speak to trends in the field and the importance of including sustainable transport in the global conversation.
  • Parking Reform: ITDP has studied the effects of better managing on street parking and reducing off street parking, and advocated for the incorporation of land use regulations and parking policy reform in many cities around the world.
  • Travel Demand Management: ITDP advocates for the implementation of travel demand management schemes, such as congestion pricing, the use of smarter travel schemes, and slow zones, and can speak to their benefits and effectiveness.
  • Where We Work: With eight field offices around the world, ITDP has worked in over 25 countries and more than 100 cities. We are available to speak about transportation and development in all these cities and regions
