On Thursday, May 28, 2015, Dr. Caroline J. Rodier presented Transportaton Futures for Deep Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reductions.

Event Information

DRISI invited you to learn more about the importance of land use and transportation decision making tools and their ability to promote new technologies and services, along with the resulting Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission reductions. Transportation and land use professionals can use the results of this study to evaluate and advocate for methods to achieve deeper GHG reductions from land use and transportation scenarios through:

  • Improved Evaluation Tools: discover emerging modeling tools that can be used to gauge markets for new services
  • Increased Awareness: understand the connectins between advancing vehicle technology as it relates to land use and public policy decisions
  • Enhanced Sustainability: hear about reducing Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) through improved multimodal and land use decision making
