He went on to say that the collaboration includes mapping the potential of the TOD area that will be collaborated, mapping the potential and business feasibility in the TOD area to financial studies, and the feasibility of the TOD business.
KAI Business Development Director Jeffrie N Korompus revealed that there was a need for synergy between stakeholders and seamless connectivity between modes to overcome congestion while providing supporting infrastructure for good transportation connectivity.
He hoped that the integrated area development could create a new culture, where the station is not only a place to get on and off passengers, but also an intermodal node and a multifunctional or safe and comfortable place.
"This will also make travel more efficient through connectivity between public transportation and the TOD area," he added.
As for the information, TOD is a development that integrates urban space design to unite people, activities, buildings, and public spaces through easy connectivity via walking or cycling as well as being close to public transportation services to reach the entire city.
