This handbook presents case studies illustrating the application of a selection of techniques for transportation-air quality planning. The analysis approaches illustrated here should be useful in developing the transportation portions of State Implementation Plans (SIP's), as required to meet national ambient air quality standards under the Clean Air Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 1857 et seq.). The effects these measures would have--on travel; the transportation system; energy conservation; and a host of other social, environmental, economic, and financial concerns; as well as on air quality--was evaluated within a broadly participatory, interactive planning process. Case study I: Freeway facility reserved for carpools and buses. Case study II: Downtown auto restricted zone. Case study III: Bus priority strategies for a radial urban corridor.
