In Focus: Air Pollution, Climate Change and the Bay Area 2010 Clean Air Plan

Written and posted by BAAQMD, January 2011.

Air quality in the Bay Area has improved significantly in recent years due to tight regulation of emissions from all sources, including industrial facilities and motor vehicles. Smoggy days have declined substantially over the past 40 years. Despite this progress, the Bay Area continues to exceed state and/or national standards for ozone (smog) and particulate matter (PM) on a limited number of days each year.

To support and better understand the benefits of smart growth land use planning to air quality, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) contracted with Fehr & Peers, Transportation Consultants to develop an excel-based tool that quantifies VMT (vehicle miles traveled) reductions from transportation demand measures (TDM).
