This paper establishes an evaluation index system of coordinated relationship between urban rail transit and land use under TOD mode. The evaluation results and rank are generated by the improved DEA model. Different input/output indexes are standardized through further analysis of different indexes' slack variables and surplus variables. The influencing degrees of different index factors to the coordinated relationship are examined. The improved directions of DEA invalid decision making units (DMU) are also analyzed through the DEA projection theory, which provides an improved reference to the invalid DMU. A case of Allegheny country in U.S. is conducted to verify the evaluation method, and the results show that the evaluations match well with the real situations. It is an effective way to evaluate the coordinated relationship between urban rail transit and land use under TOD mode.
