In the United States, transportation is the largest source of green house gas (GHG) emissions, after electricity generation. Within the transportation sector, cars and trucks account for a majority of emissions. The objective of this study is to advance the practice and application of transportation planning among state, regional, and local transportation planning agencies to successfully meet growing concerns about the relationship between transportation and climate change. This report explores the possibilities for integrating climate change considerations into long range transportation planning at state DOTs and MPOs. The report reviews the experience of a number of DOTs and metropolitan transportation plans (MPOs) that are already incorporating climate change into their transportation planning processes and identifies their successes as well as challenges faced by these agencies.
