This thesis is a case study undertaken to understand how Transit Oriented Development objectives shape the transit planning process and outcomes. The method draws on documentary research and in-depth interviews which highlight the experience of key informants in the planning and design of the Gold Coast Rapid Transport project, an urban light rail, due to open in mid-2014, connecting a string of high density coastal centres.
