New Beginnings and New Opportunities: Decarbonizing Transportation
Pacific Grove, California
The 18th biennial conference addressed the challenge of climate change in the context of environmental and mobility justice, how they influenced transportation investments and choices, and the policies for accomplishing these changes in a sustainable manner. We are at a pivotal point, with new technologies and business models sweeping through transportation, and major governmental investments being considered. The focus of this conference was on national policy, but with links to international and state/local policymaking. Key topics included energy (electrification, hydrogen, and biofuels); new mobility and transit; freight; and cities (as it relates to national policy toward land use, climate, and social justice).
