TECHNICAL METHODS FOR ANALYZING PRICING MEASURES TO REDUCE TRANSPORTATION EMISSIONS

The purpose of this report is to provide guidance to state transportation and air quality planners in quantifying the impacts of transportation pricing measures in their regional transportation models. This assistance is needed to develop regional transportation plans, transportation improvement programs, and state implementation plans. The modeling enhancements may also be useful for demonstrating conformity. Specifically, this report describes methodologies cities and states can use to analyze the air quality benefits of market-based transportation policies. The intent of these guidelines is to: assist transportation, planning, and air quality professionals at state and local levels in analyzing the emissions reduction potential of market based approaches; and to provide state air agency and US EPA field staff with technical guidance for reviewing analyses of market-based measures proposed as part of state and local air quality planning processes.
