At first the paper analyzes the relationship, effects and applicability of TOD and P&R in Chinese urban planning. Then, it demonstrates some impacts brought by the two methods to urban space layout and land use. At the end, research results are proposed to the government and technical staff whereby it can be used as reference and support tool for policy decisions and technical projects in practices.
