When people around the country discuss "transit oriented development" they describe tall buildings surrounding a bus or train station that are designed to discourage car commuting.  In its definition of T.O.D., Streetswiki even states:

A TOD also usually has relatively easy access for people on foot andbikes, while cars and other vehicles are discouraged from parking tooclose to the station. As a result, TODs are often friendlier topedestrians and bicyclists than other forms of land development, andthey encourage people to ride trains and buses rather than drive.

Given that, why does Noho Commons, a "transit oriented development" located across the street from the Orange and Red Line stop in North Hollywood, entice drivers to a boast of free parking?
