Abstract: The interaction between land use and transit station is a cyclic process. The allocation of certain use to a land impacts the demand for travel towards that land, which in turn results in the development of transport infrastructure facilities improving the accessibility of that land. The attractiveness of transport infrastructure facilities results in increase in land value which affects the use of that piece of land to the use which can afford that space and rent. In this manner, land use and transportation impacts each other. The visible change in land use due to the presence of a transit station can be observed only after a certain period of time, which in turn depends on the level of interaction between the both. This level of interaction not only depends on the transit station, but on lot of other supporting factors like availability of land for development, population density, employment density, positive regional economy, etc.
