    This paper seeks to identify and understand crucial barriers faced by transit oriented developments in the Netherlands through the use of deductive and inductive perceptions of stakeholders and experts involved gathered through literature analysis, open interviews and focus groups. The research aims to translate the tacit knowledge of stakeholders in abstract concepts or explicit knowledge through observation and reflection in an experiential learning cycle. Findings indicate that critical barriers are to i) the unclarity and multiplicity of stakeholder roles leads to lack of commitment and ii) indolence for public transport leads to lack of urgency and knowledge sharing masked by the recognizable symptom of lack of financial resources.
