GUIDELINES ON INTEGRATING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT EVALUATION IN FUTURE ITS DEPLOYMENT STUDIES
The transportation sector, being a major source of air pollution, can play a very important role in improving air quality. The challenge lies in improving the quality of the air we breathe without adversely affecting the mobility of the nation. In this context, it is important to explore transportation options that may result in potential air quality benefits. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technologies and operational concepts are increasingly being considered an integral element for improving transportation system operations. Recently, interest has also focused on investigating the emissions implications of various ITS interventions/deployments. This document proposes general guidelines for integrating environmental impact evaluation in future ITS deployment studies. These guidelines are intended to assist parties undertaking future studies of ITS deployment plans to build environmental impact measures in their studies. The guidelines identify the kinds of analyses, operational indicators and proxies, and direct environmental measures (pre- and post-deployment) that would be recommended in the context of prototypical ITS deployments.
