US National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization recommends use of Transportation Demand Management to increase efficiency of our transportation systems

From the U.S. National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization Fact Sheet:

The transportation sector is the largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the United States, responsible for one-third of all emissions. To address the growing climate crisis, and to meet the goal of net-zero GHG emissions economy-wide by 2050, it is critical to decarbonize transportation by eliminating nearly all GHG emissions from the section. A decarbonized transportation system can mobilize a sustainable economy that benefits everyone.

The U.S. National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization is a first-of-its-kind strategy for federal leadership and partnerships to decarbonize the entire U.S. transportation sector – requiring multiple strategies and resources to deliver safe, effective, affordable, and sustainable solutions to existing and emerging challenges. It serves as a guide for future policymaking and research, development, demonstration, and deployment in the public and private sectors to transform how people and goods move throughout the United States, all built on five guiding principles:

  • Implement bold actions to achieve measurable results
  • Embrace creative solutions across the transportation system
  • Ensure safety, equity, and access
  • Increase collaboration
  • Establish U.S. leadership



The full 88-page document outlines an enormous amount of information in great detail, but the two-page Fact Sheet here provides a nice summary of Transportation Decarbonization Strategies slated for immediate action and long-term planning.
