Interagency Partnerships


Local governments—including cities, counties, and special districts such as sewer or water districts—have traditionally been charged with building, operating, and maintaining basic infrastructure and facilities in California. In a smart growth context, however, local governments often partner with local or regional transportation agencies to improve bicycle/pedestrian access, provide parking, or make other station area improvements. Transit agencies may also get involved more directly in transit-oriented development when the agency owns land near the station that they wish to develop, as in the West Dublin BART case study.
