Transportation Emissions Reduction Strategies
Date published: May 30, 2008
Survey consists of responses from professionals at 49 organizations (city/county/state departments of transportation, metropolitan planning organizations, and transit agencies) regarding the cost effectiveness of various transportation emissions reduction strategies. Topics/questions include:
- Improving land use planning (transit oriented development, mixed use development, etc.)
- Technological improvements to vehicles (hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles, etc.)
- Improving traffic signal timing and synchronization
- Increasing teleworking by subsidizing implementation and/or providing incentives for implementation
- Increasing transit use by improving/expanding transit
- Increasing transit use by subsidizing transit fares
- Applying road pricing
- Applying parking restrictions (local ordinances to specify a maximum rate of parking to be provided for new development rather than a minimum parking rate)
- Increasing walking and biking by improving facilities
- Increasing ride sharing by subsidizing implementation and/or providing incentives for implementation
- Increasing the application of roundabouts (in place of traffic signals)
- Increasing the application of advanced traffic management on highways (ramp metering, use of shoulders as a traffic lane during peak periods, etc.)
- What do you consider to be the most cost-effective transportation emissions reduction strategies that have been applied in your metropolitan/urban area?
- What do you personally believe to be the most cost-effective transportation emissions reduction strategies?
- Is your jurisdiction or metropolitan area considering any new emissions reduction targets or have they adopted any new targets? If so, please indicate what these targets might be.
- Are there any legislative initiatives related to smart growth/sustainable development in place or planned by any of the jurisdictions in your area?
