Inspiration from the U.S.A!
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), part of the U.S. Department of Transportation, has published a “Reference Sourcebook for Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Transportation Sources”. It’s not very recent (from January 2012), but still relevant for this DMS thematic group. The American document describes various transportation-related greenhouse gas mitigation strategies, estimates the potential range of GHG reductions, estimates costs, identifies barriers to implementation, identifies example projects etc. There is one chapter devoted specifically to Transportation Demand Management Strategies.
The review covers the following eight Transport Demand Management strategies: Road Pricing; Parking Management and Parking Pricing; Car Sharing; Pay-as-You-Drive Insurance; Ridesharing and HOV Lanes; Transit Incentives; Transit Improvements and Telework.
For each of these topics the following is described:
Policy / Emissions Benefits and Costs / Implementation Concerns
Policy and Implementing Organizations
Effects (Target Group; GHG Effects)
Estimated Cost per Metric Ton of CO2 Reduction
Key Assumptions and Uncertainties
Data and Tools
Implementation Concerns (Agency Cost; Agency Implementation Concerns; Social Concerns; Other Costs/Barriers)
Interactions with Other Strategies (Unique Co-benefits; Unique Negative Effects)
Where in Use
