Activity Type: Posters

Activity ID: NPC187029


  • Drivers of greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector today, a majority of which are generated by on-road use of private vehicles
  • Emissions-reduction potential of a wide variety of strategies, all of which are necessary to achieve a significant reduction in GHGs in the transportation sector
  • How transportation GHG emission-reduction strategies can naturally feed into travel mode split and mode shift goals at a citywide level


New York City's Roadmap to 80x50 outlines a universe of strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050. This poster will illustrate a detailed technical analysis undertaken within the transportation sector, showing: 1. The drivers of transportation emissions today (almost 90 percent from private vehicles) 2. How transportation emissions would somewhat decrease in the modeled "business as usual" case (i.e. without further intervention) 3. The wide mix of strategies modeled across numerous policy clusters, which put NYC on the path to meet its aggressive 80 percent target 4. How the 80x50 case syncs up with NYC's official transportation mode split targets
