The Transportation and Land Use Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction Toolkit (Toolkit), developed by the Oregon Department of Transportation, is intended primarily to help local jurisdictions identify and explore the kinds of actions and programs which can be implemented to help reduce GHG emissions from transportation. For example, how do parking permit programs impact emissions? What kinds of investments in bike or pedestrian infrastructure are best suited to help achieve local goals? The Categories of the Toolkit include: Pricing; Land Use; Bicycle and Pedestrian; Public Transportation; Transportation Demand Management; Operations/Intelligent Transportation Systems; Capacity Expansion/ Bottleneck Relief; Fleet; and Freight.
The Toolkit can be used in conjunction with a scenario planning exercise or on its own to explore the potential effectiveness and benefits of different actions and programs.
The Toolkit has several components which can be used together or alone: Database; Modeling and Analysis Tools Report; Case Studies; and a Communications Guide.
