Higher Targets to Plan Better Cities

To meet the state’s ambitious climate change goals, the California Air Resources Board is exploring higher targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from driving. The Bay Area and other urban regions are supportive of these more rigorous objectives, but achieving the desired 18 percent per capita reductions means that these regions will need to plan for growth closer to transit and further shift investment toward non-automobile travel modes. What impacts will these new targets have on planning in California’s metropolitan areas? Generously sponsored by Bank of the West.
