Project description

The primary goal of this project is to examine a select group of strategies with the greatest potential for reducing vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by synthesizing existing research. UC Davis will consider a wide variety of co- benefits and costs associated with the selected strategies including the parallel goal of improving social equity. The long-term objectives for this project include the improvement of local, regional, and state strategies for reducing VMT. These objectives will be achieved through revisions to regional Sustainable Community Strategies (SCSs) and other transportation policies.
