A 50% Reduction in our Transportation Emissions? How Is That Possible?

Mar 11 2014 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Todd Litman, Exec Director of VTPI

Join us for another free BCSEA Webinar.

The presentation will describe win-win transportation solutions that are cost-effective and technically feasible, and planning changes that improve transportation modes, apply more efficient pricing, and create accessible, multi-modal communities.

Since the changes provide many economic, social and environmental benefits, they can be justified regardless of the cost assigned to their greenhouse gas emissions.

If they are implemented to the degree that is economically justified, these win-win solutions can achieve a 30-50% reduction in our emissions while helping to address other problems such as traffic congestion, road accidents and inadequate mobility for non-drivers, while also supporting economic development.
