Emissions from the transportation sector are on the rise with total vehicle miles traveled (VMT) per person increasing and a large share of transportation emissions coming from light-duty gas and diesel vehicles. Reductions in VMT can be achieved through compact development patterns that reduce trip lengths or needs, as well as pedestrian-centered design that supports non-vehicular modes of travel such as bicycling and walking.
