This paper mainly discusses the urban TOD planning model and its relationship with urban sustainable development. Based on a comprehensive design study of three different urban cases, the article demonstrates the role of the TOD planning model in promoting sustainable development. Through the analysis of three typical examples in China and a series of urban planning theories, the article puts forward the content, internal connection, and practical effect of the integrated design of the subway station area. Taking Chongqing Longhu Light Year Project, Hangzhou Metro Citizen Center Station, and Beijing Metro Line 11 as research objects, we analyze the impact of function, traffic, and landscape integration. The rationality and status quo of such designs in urban planning are presented. The results show that the TOD planning model is a comprehensive strategy, which can promote sustainable development and solve many social problems in many aspects such as convenient transportation, social equity, economic development, and environmental protection.
