Transportation Impacts on Climate • Largest sector emitting CO2 • 97% of Transportation emissions are from fossil fuels, remaining is CO2 • 48% increase in GHG emissions since 1990

Transportation Impacts on Climate

Federal Response • Clean Air Act • National Ambient Air Quality Standards – SOx, PM10 & 2.5, CO, O3, NOx, etc. • Mobile Sources vs. Non-Mobile Sources • Attainment vs. Non-Attainment • Transportation Conformity – Manufacturers – MPOs and Local Governments

Non-Attainment Areas

Federal Response • Air Quality Monitoring Stations • State Implementation Plans • MOVES Model

Transportation Planning • Long Range Transportation Plan – Transportation Conformity • Interagency Consultation Team (FHWA, FTA, DOT, MPO, EPA, etc.) • Transportation Improvement Plan – Transportation Conformity • Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ)

What has been the local response to reduce GHG emissions in the transportation sector?

Education • • • • The Clean Air Campaign Clean Cities Georgia 511/Georgia Navigator HERO units

Commuting Options • • • • • • • • Carpooling Vanpooling Transit Biking and Walking Teleworking Flexible work schedules Pool to School Park & Ride Lot Interactive Map
