Comment 497 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|Subject||Transportation Goals Need Strengthening|
Our car-centric transportation system is responsible for about
half of our greenhouse emissions, as well as for most the air
pollution that plagues many of our cities. We need to get
people out of cars and provide them with safe and reliable
alternatives to driving. We should be focusing on expanding
and improving transit, on providing first and last mile
micromobility options to and from transit, and on creating safe
infrastructure for cycling and walking. Reduction targets for
vehicle miles traveled should be 25% below 2019 levels by 2030, and
30% below 2019 levels by 2035. The goals for the future percentage
of vehicles on the road that are zero emission are too conservative
and should be more ambitious. In particular transit buses,
which largely pollute communities of concern, should all be
zero-emission by 2030. The enormity of the crisis we're
facing demands that we scale up our efforts to meet it.
