TRANSPORTATION CONTROL MEASURES AND THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT: A COMPARATIVE REVIEW

Urban transportation accounts for a large share of the total consumption of fossil fuels and the total generation of atmospheric pollution in both the United States and Canada. This paper has two objectives. The first is to review the general category of policies known as transportation control measures (TCMs) as they apply to urban areas, and the second is to examine and compare progress that has been made toward the implementation of these measures in the United States and Canada. It will become obvious that differences in the structure of federal/state as opposed to federal/provincial relations have led to different frameworks for the implementation of TCMs in the U.S. and Canada.
