IVHS AND THE ENVIRONMENT: NEW MODELS FOR FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL COOPERATION IN URBAN AREAS
Intelligent vehicle highway systems (IVHS), now called Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), have the potential to substantially change transportation's impact on urban air quality and other environmental aspects. Whether this impact is positive, however, depends on how these technologies are deployed. This report presents the findings of a study begun in 1993 to explore the public policy issues related to the environmental impacts of ITS. The study was conducted by the State and Local policy Program of the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota and funded through a cooperative agreement with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The study focused on finding new models for cooperation among federal, state, and local institutions that would ensure deployment of ITS technologies in a manner that minimizes the negative impacts and maximizes the positive impacts on urban air quality and the broader environment.
