Public transport infrastructure is essential to city development, improving accessibility and allowing people to engage in activities, allowing travel by environmentally-friendly modes, and also creating economic benefits. This study investigates the impacts of public transport accessibility on development, examining changes in housing prices, and applying hedonic modelling. London’s Docklands Light Railway (DLR) is selected as a case study. The findings show that residential properties in station catchment areas of the south-eastern and northern branches of the DLR have a premium respectively of 0.352% and 0.093% per 100 m proximity to a station. By assessing inclusive variables, it is found that housing value is also determined by the property’s own features and the neighbourhood, particularly the property tenure. The detected housing value uplift implies that the provision of good public transport is crucial in policy making, especially in areas with poor public transport accessibility. Moreover, since transport investment is partly capitalised in housing projects, we suggest that future transport infrastructure investment and housing development should be set within a framework of value capture policies.
