Peter: If you are looking for international examples, the Bay Area, CA, U.S. has a Smart Growth Strategy that links housing with transportation. ABAG (Association of Bay Area Governments) is promoting a corridor model of growth, and trying to link adequate housing in close proximity to transportation. More information can be found at their website: http://www.abag.ca.gov/planning/smartgrowth/corridor.html I think that their approach is to use the promise of an expansion of transportation as an incentive to influence housing development (i.e.,where people live).
