This paper presents results from a 2018 survey of local planners about an impending transition in California’s environmental review law, which will require planners to evaluate land development projects for their effects on vehicle miles traveled (VMT) rather than automobile level-of-service (LOS).
This white paper reviews the complex systems through which California generates and allocates state revenue for transportation investment. It finds that the state’s framework for funding transportation is disconnected from its climate goals.
The paper contributes to the literature on millennials’ mobility by rigorously classifying various forms of travel multimodality through the analysis of a rich dataset that includes individual attitudes and preferences.
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.
This policy brief summarizes findings from a study that developed six alternative fee structure scenarios, each capable of raising $200 million per year, to explore equity implications of a fee system in California.
