The Corridors program—and its successor, Transit-Oriented Development Corridors TODC —hinges on shifting the type and location of private investment in the real estate market.
Earlier programs contracted private sector entities to provide subsidized housing units on publicly owned land. Through the CB program, the city provided market data and increased transparency to support private sector investment decisions. The Corridors program took the next step in working directly with investors to change the type and location of their projects because the City of Johannesburg recognized that it was the only viable way to achieve long-term integration. Several factors enabled and inhibited the progress of the Corridors program. The COF reflected the anti-apartheid urban policy focus on corridors to overcome racial segregation.
Yet progress was hindered by entrenched inequality in land ownership that makes radical transformation incredibly difficult. Furthermore, the concept of mixed-income housing was untested in Johannesburg, making it difficult to achieve widespread and rapid market uptake. Institutional fragmentation and changing city leadership also made it difficult to maintain full support for the Corridors.

The first is that housing programs need to adopt an integrated approach that acknowledges the connection between informal and formal housing markets. One direct outcome of a more integrated approach is targeting social rental housing towards specific groups, such as young professionals and students, who seem more willing to be close to public transit. The Corridors experience also shows that increasing access to opportunities requires integrating BRT, and other mass transit systems, with the informal minibus system.
