San Bernardino TOD Overlay Districts

As part of the San Bernardino TOD Overlay District design team, visioning and development implementation experience was given to guide zoning and land use decisions for stations along the E Street sbX Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Corridor. The BRT corridor connects Downtown San Bernardino and San Bernardino Transit Center to California State University San Bernardino (CSUSB) in the north and Loma Linda in the south. The evaluation process looked at all 16 stations along the BRT corridor to identify six stations that offered the greatest catalytic redevelopment opportunities. 

Vision master plans were created for each of the six stations based on the idea of creating self-sustaining neighborhood centers at a scale, land use mix, density and sensitivity to existing land uses and assets. This allowed each station area to be designed to appropriately serve the specific needs of the neighborhood, with each having its very own distinct public open space and character. In addition, parking locations and shared parking opportunities were identified to promote transit ridership and improved walkability at each station.
