Transitioning to a low-carbon local transportation network

Our Focus for Local Transportation

Increase Active Transportation and Transit
We aim to increase the region’s reliance on already active transportation and transit systems.

Promote Electrification of Local Transportation
We encourage the use of electricity as the fuel source for local transportation, both in terms of mass and individual transit. By planning and building infrastructure that supports the use of electricity in transportation, our community can adapt to a changing climate and do its part to prevent further damage with this new energy future.

Move to Clean Low-Carbon Fuels
We recognize the need to transition off fossil fuels. At its heart, climate change is a global energy problem — but this problem has local solutions. By using clean, decarbonized energy sourced locally, we can provide affordable, renewable energy solutions for transportation.
