Project Summary

A multi-faceted group of researchers from seven academic institutions teamed up to advance the State’s knowledge on the effects of emissions in the transportation sector on disadvantaged communities by focusing on interrelated areas – innovative mobility, electrification, public transit, land use, active transportation, and goods movement—using equity and policy engagement lenses as crosscutting themes. Research centered on regional case study initiatives and statewide initiatives to demonstrate findings.
