Caltrans Introduces Smart Mobility
06/22/09 Filed in: Climate Change | Transportation Planning
Caltrans offered a workshop last week in Sacramento on their new Smart Mobility Framework. This is a program that Caltrans has developed in association with EPA. It takes Smart Growth principles and integrates them into transportation in a manner that environmental activists will find both familiar and heartening.
There is a draft document available on the website below that is open for comment through June 30. This document is good enough to serve as the rallying point for future activism. It discusses induced demand and reducing vehicle miles–we never thought we would see that coming from Caltrans. Check it out on Caltrans website!
