SubjectReduce GHG by transitioning our transportation systems

  • The biggest opportunity for reducing greenhouse gas emissions is in transitioning our transportation system from car-based to transit-based. There need to be more concrete steps for how the state will shift people to traveling by transit, biking, and walking instead of by car. Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) are key and targets should be accelerated. VMT per capita should be reduced to 25% below 2019 levels by 2030 and 30% below 2019 levels by 2035. Zero Emission Vehicles are also key and targets must 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
