The Road to Clean Air: Improvements for Sustainable Transportation

Transportation is a leading source of GHGs and smog-forming emissions in California. To make significant reductions in vehicle-related pollution, we need a comprehensive approach to facilitate clean transportation alternatives. The LGC, with support from the American Lung Association, has released a new factsheet highlighting the impacts of continued reliance on gas powered car travel and the changes needed to achieve State climate and equity goals. These include policy and investments that support a widespread shift to use of active transportation, transit and shared mobility for longer trips, and zero-emission vehicles for trips where transit or active transportation is not a viable option.
