This report summarizes work done in support of the U.S. EPA Office of Mobile Sources Transportation and Market Incentive Groups efforts to reduce mobile source air pollution by providing tools to quantify, recognize, and where appropriate, credit sustainable land use and transportation practices. A number of recent and ongoing research projects have been exploring the land use/air quality linkages, focusing on topics such as the true impact of land use on air quality and improving analytical techniques for modeling these linkages. The purpose of this study was to determine whether or not air quality agencies are taking credit for land use control measures in their state implementation plans (SIP) and to determine what activities EPA might undertake to both quantify the air quality benefits of sustainable land use policies and to enable air quality agencies to take credit for these measures in SIPs.
