Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) concept and designs are successfully implemented in developed countries like United States, Australia and United Kingdom. Being motivated by them, developing countries are looking forward to adopt similar concepts. However, these TOD concepts are not directly transferable to developing countries due to factors such as demographic, social, economic, environmental, political and urbanization which play a major role in planning and implementation of new urban development concepts like TOD. Hence, the planning and implementation strategies have to be derived separately at least at national level. In this line, the study proposed a comprehensive planning methodology for TOD implication. Hyderabad, India has taken as case study to adopt proposed methodology at region/city level. As a part of this, a Spatial Multi-Criteria Approach (SMCA) is adopted using Geographic Information System (GIS) at various stages (i.e. population and employment densities, transit and road network, availability of open land and existing land use). In this study, Hyderabad is categorised into 2 parts namely Urban and sub-urban at first stage in the process. After processing the next three level in methodology, Optimum TOD locations were identified and also suggested TOD typology is drawn.
