It All Adds Up To Cleaner Air: A Collaborative Transportation and Air Quality Public Education and Partnership Building Initiative. The First Five Years

This program ("It All Adds Up to Cleaner Air") is a multilevel public information and partnership-building initiative designed to help people better understand the effect of their behavior and choices on air quality and congestion. While the past 20 years have seen much progress in decreasing air pollution, many people still regularly experience problems of worsening congestion, increased commuter stress, and smoggy skies. This program seeks to raise public awareness and ultimately effect behavior changes using a three-pronged approach: (1) support to communities; (2) formation of a national coalition; and (3) development of an awareness campaign to include creation and dissemination of high-quality public information materials. The program provides a national context that supports local calls to action targeting three core messages: (1) the value of combining travel errands (i.e., trip chaining); (2) the need to keep cars well-maintained; and (3) the benefits of using alternative transportation modes. This report chronicles the actions, partnerships, achievements, and lessons learned following five years of implementing "It All Adds Up to Cleaner Air".
