This white paper examines the co-benefits of reducing vehicles miles of travel. Examples include reductions in air pollutant emissions, water pollution, wildlife mortality, and traffic congestion, as well as improvements in safety and health, and savings in public and private costs.
This project examines the potential for single-occupancy drivers to use public transit in their morning commutes. (For the final project, the researchers switched the study location from the Sacramento area to the San Francisco Bay area.)
This white paper is written to be a practitioner’s guide to the extensive academic literature that provides evidence of policy effectiveness in reducing vehicle miles travelled (VMT). It compares the costs and benefits of various VMT reduction policies.
