Transportation and land-use development are closely connected and make the different urban forms we know. Globally, there are many large cities whose forms were shaped by transportation and land use. However, there is neither a systematic discussion nor empirical analysis to prove which kinds of transportation factor will connect land use and which kinds of land-use factor will connect transportation. Therefore, this paper aims at reviewing the literature, using empirical analysis and study of 36 cities worldwide to develop quantitative and qualitative definitions of connections. Finally, this paper uses an empirical analysis to demonstrate connections of transportation and land-use.
