A Transportation Research Program for Mitigating and Adapting to Climate Change and Conserving Energy Special Report 299

A Transportation Research Program for Mitigating and Adapting to Climate Change and Conserving Energy Special Report 299

Date: October 2009
Creator: Committee for Study on Transportation Research Programs to Address Energy and Climate Change
Description: This report from the Transportation Research Board suggests that federal, state, and local policy makers need informed guidance about the effectiveness, costs, feasibility, and acceptability of transportation strategies to mitigate transportation greenhouse gas emissions, to conserve energy, and to adapt to climate change. The report covers strategies affecting travel and mode choice, models and decision tools, infrastructure investment options and infrastructure construction, operation, and maintenance. The report recommends beginning a research and development initiative by making a modest investment of $40 million to $45 million annually in the next surface transportation authorization that would be used to develop the best available guidance quickly on the basis of existing information and then begin to improve that guidance over time as new research is completed.
