Contents Notes
The report and the TravelMatters website (developed as part of this project) are designed to present information on climate change and to examine how greenhouse gas emissions from transportation may be reduced. Both the print and web-based research products review the capacity of public transportation to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and present this information in a format accessible to transportation professionals and the general public. Key strategies for reducing transportation emissions--increasing the use of transit, changing land-use patterns, and adopting energy-efficient technologies and fuels in transit fleets--are discussed. Summary -- Introduction and research approach -- Climate change research -- Local strategies for reducing carbon dioxide emissions -- Transit technologies for reducing greenhouse gases -- Web-based tools for reducing greenhouse gas emissions -- Conclusions and suggested research -- Appendices.
