Several current and proposed transportation policies include targets for reducing vehicle miles traveled (VMT) as a strategy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation sources, primarily CO2. Paritipants will be able to determine the benefits, drawbacks, and viability of VMT reduction targets, which will be identified as an achievable, effective, and cost-efficient strategy for GHG-CO2 reduction.
