In the transportation sector, GHG emissions reducing measures include low carbon fuels, cleaner vehicles, and strategies to promote sustainable communities and improved transportation choices that result in curbing the growth in vehicle miles traveled VMT. Under SB , the development and implementation of SCSs, which link transportation, land use, housing, and climate policy at the regional level, are designed to reduce per capita GHG emissions.
This is partially accomplished through reductions in per capita VMT.
In , CARB adopted more aggressive SB targets as one measure to support progress toward the Scoping Plan goals, which aim to get SCSs that plan to achieve, in aggregate, a 19 percent reduction in statewide per capita GHG emissions reductions relative to by from passenger vehicles. However, additional state and local actions are needed to achieve the transportation system reductions necessary to meet our climate goals, which is approximately 25 percent reduction in statewide per capita GHG emissions by relative to The following document includes technical information on what level of statewide VMT reduction would promote achievement of statewide GHG emissions reduction targets and the Scoping Plan goals.
Regions across the State have developed a number of quantitative and qualitative tools to characterize the many benefits SCS implementation would bring to their regions, including:.
