Transportation, Land Use and Greenhouse Gases: A Bay Area Resource Guide

This guide, which was produced in 2009 for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, is aimed at sparking discussion and generating new ideas and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) among members of the San Francisco Bay Area transportation community. Its authors suggest it may also be used as a tool by transportation planners to better understand the options and trade-offs available for reducing CO2. They provide basic information on 45 possible strategies, divided into five main categories: improving vehicles and fuels; improving the infrastructure; focusing growth, shifting transportation behavior, and other strategies, including cap and trade, in-house emissions reduction, and adaptation. They include projects and initiatives that may serve as models, as well as ratings to help planners better understand the impacts of individual strategies as well as associated costs.
