SubjectScoping Plan does not go far enough

In the face of unprecedented climate change, California needs to lead the way in greenhouse gas emissions. The biggest opportunity for reducing GHGs is in transitioning our transportation system from car-based to transit-based. We need more concrete steps for shifting people from single-car trips to transit, biking, and walking transportation. Bigger investments in bus and rail are desperately needed, as well as a bigger focus on Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT). Zero emission vehicles are also one part of the solution; targets shoudl be accelerated as follows:

    • 100% Light Duty Vehicle (LDV) sales are ZEV by 2035 at least 75% LDV sales are ZEV by 2030 with only ZEVs on the road by 2045
    • 100% of MD/Heavy Duty Vehicle (HDV) sales are ZEV by 2035 with only MD/HD ZEVs on road by 2045
    • 100% of all transit buses ZEV by 2030
    • 100% of drayage trucks are zero emission by 2030
    • 100% of cargo handling equipment (CHE) is zero-emission by 2030

Thank you and please stand up to the business-as-usual folks who want to pretend that anything less than drastic action is needed right now.
