New Bedford Transit-Oriented Development (NBTOD) Study

Welcome to the New Bedford TOD Study Page

The New Bedford Department of City Planning, with assistance from the Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD), is conducting a study of existing and future conditions for the areas surrounding the North New Bedford (Church Street) and New Bedford (Whales Tooth) platforms. The project team will first evaluate existing conditions and then present findings to the public to gather input through multiple outlets. The project team will then craft recommendations to shape the neighborhoods surrounding the future platforms.
