Combating Global Warming Through Sustainable Surface Transportation Policy

The objective of this project is to identify opportunities for public transportation services, and related sustainable transportation strategies, to aid in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector. The project will develop an easy to understand method to measure the effects of personal travel decisions on global warming and will identify strategies to increase public awareness of the impacts of travel decisions on global warming.
