Barriers to Reducing the Carbon Footprint of Transportation

Project Description

July 2020 - June 2022

The key objective of this project is to inform the California Air Resources Board on the quickly evolving transportation patterns resulting from the deployment and adoption of emerging transportation technologies, and the disruptions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, and identify opportunities for reduction of vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation.  Task 3, led by Dr. Susan Handy, is an evaluation of the policy space for VMT reductions in the "after COVID-19" world.
