Transportation is the largest generator of greenhouse gas emissions in California. Efficient transportation systems, encouraging alternatives to single occupancy vehicles, and reducing the miles that vehicles travel can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, help conserve fuel and cut fuel costs, improve air quality, reduce traffic congestion and make streets safer for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users and motorists.
Cities and counties are leading by example and undertaking a
range of activities to create more sustainable communities.
These case stories review different local agencies’ experiences
related to efficient transportation activities.
These resources will help inform your efficient transportation
activities. Resources include links to organizations, state and
federal agencies, tools, guides and tip sheets to support your
work. You’ll also find examples of programs and materials
from cities and counties.
The Beacon Award is sponsored by the Statewide Energy Efficiency
Collaborative, which offers no-cost resources to support the
energy and climate initiatives of California local governments.
