This policy brief summarizes findings from a white paper that assembles the most prominent proposals to address aspects of securing or reforming state and federal transportation funding and reviews them in the context of sustainable transportation.
To better understand the link between how new bicycle infrastructure influences the routes that bicyclists choose, researchers analyzed bicyclists’ route choice before and after a 45% increase in bike lanes and 178% increase in sharrows in the City of San Francisco.
The transition to electric vehicles (EVs) will rely, ultimately, on the participation of all vehicle buyers. Researchers at UC Davis examined whether the gender similarities in prospective interest in EVs witnessed in California extended to other states that, while generally supportive of California’s EV goals and signatories to many of California’s air quality standards had less supportive policy frameworks, fewer EV sales, and less EV charging infrastructure in 2014.
This policy brief aims to answer the following questions: what is the best way to measure individuals’ long-distance travel in order to inform planning and policy, and what factors are associated with long-distance travel and do they suggest inequitable access to intercity and more distant destinations?
This policy brief summarizes findings and provides policy implications from research that analyzed life cycle assessment literature to understand whether alkali-activated materials can achieve the same mechanical performance as Portland cement with lower CO2 emissions.
This policy brief summarizes findings from a study of how the change to using VMT rather than LOS to measure land use projects' transportation impacts affects the approval process for urban development.
