ASSESSMENT OF THE EFFECTS OF PROPOSED LOCOMOTIVE REGULATIONS ON GOODS TRANSPORT MODES AND LOCOMOTIVE EMISSIONS

The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of proposed locomotive emission regulation strategies on mode choice and locomotive emissions and to formulate the framework for an active market for locomotive emission reduction credits. The study included five tasks: 1) estimate commodity flow by mode; 2) calculate the contribution of emissions by goods transport mode; 3) perform a comprehensive review and evaluation of mode choice models; 4) assess the direction and magnitude of mode shifts attributable to locomotive emission regulations; and, 5) develop the framework for an active locomotive emissions market.
