E – 1570 Sustainable Transportation Control Measures
Intended Audience: civil, electrical, environmental, mechanical, and municipal engineers
PDH UNITS: 3
Explore the real-life success stories of communities using sustainable transportation control measures (TCMs).
Our online course written by Dr. Mark P. Rossow, PhD., PE describes the process of developing and implementing transportation control measures through real-world examples.
Transportation control measures (TCMs) are strategies that reduce transportation-related air pollution, greenhouse-gas emissions (GHG), and fuel use by reducing vehicle miles traveled and improving roadway operations. For example, emissions from individual vehicle use can be reduced by offering less polluting alternatives (e.g. public transit) and strategies that decrease the need for vehicle trips (e.g. telecommuting). TCMs may also focus on making travel more efficient by improving the management of a transportation system.
The information presented in this engineering, online, PDH-approved course is based on the EPA’s “Transportation Control Measures” from the EPA’s Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy Series.
