In some Australian planning circles, transit oriented development (TOD) has been portrayed as a fad. Looking back though, we can see that 19th century and early 20th century inner suburbs of most Australian capitals developed historically as TODs (though not called that). Brisbane was no exception. Many older Brisbane suburbs like West End and Woolloongabba developed by integrating higher density land use and built form around key tram stops and rail stations. Postwar developments in the city's outer suburbs mostly abandoned this notion as car dependence swelled.
