BACKGROUND OF THE PROGRAM

      Transit Oriented Development is truly about generating walkable, sustainable communities and giving more transportation and housing choices to the communities.


        The World Bank in its Malaysia Economic Monitor June 2015, “Transforming Urban Transport” report, stated that residents in Kuala Lumpur spend more than 250 million hours per year stuck in traffic. With an average income of RM3, 000 per month or 18.75 per hour, it equates to a whopping loss of over RM4 billion of productive work hours. Hence, the government, alongside with private sector, is presenting Transit Oriented Development as a practical and progressive solution for congestion in development and also roads.

       Transit Oriented Development is a solution with a positive outlook as it opens up the opportunity to create dynamic, viable communities in high density commercial and residential developments that are centred around high-quality train systems which can improve the issue of congestions on the road. Around the world, Transit Oriented Development has demonstrated to be exceptionally effective, especially in Europe and Japan. The idea of having Transit Oriented Development communities is also being widely accepted throughout Asia such as in Singapore, China and even Malaysia.

        The Malaysia Transit Oriented Development Property Conference 2017 will discuss the countless opportunities for growth and overcoming challenges in developing TOD through world’s leading TOD case studies.
