Transportation-Related Land Use Strategies to Minimize Motor Vehicle Emissions

An Indirect Source Research Study

California Air Resources Board

The ARB funded this project to obtain a better understanding of the quantitative benefits of land use planning and development in conjunction with multi-modal transportation facilities that provide convenient alternatives to personal vehicle travel. The results of this research are intended to provide information to local governments, air districts, planning organizations, designers, builders and other interested parties. The information may be used in developing land use-related programs that can increase the rate of walking, bicycling and transit use. Such strategies can reduce dependence on automobile travel while helping to ensure personal mobility and providing cleaner air.
