Operational and vehicular strategies for reducing fuel consumption and Green House Gas emissions from trucking

Operational and vehicular strategies for reducing fuel consumption and Green House Gas emissions from trucking

Date: August 2011
Creator: Walton, C. Michael
Description: "Reducing fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions is becoming increasingly important in the United States, and new legislation can be expected in the near future that will affect trucks either directly or indirectly. This work is a qualitative examination of operational strategies for reducing fuel consumption from freight trucking, and also compares them with vehicular strategies. A focus is placed on who implements, benefits from, and pays for each strategy, and what type of trucking each strategy is applicable to."

An evaluation of the effects of transit oriented development in a suburban environment

Date: October 2010
Creator: Lewis, Carol Abel
Description: "Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) refers to dense, pedestrian-friendly, livable communities that have good transit as a nucleus. While transit facilities are missing in most suburban towns and the residents are heavily dependent on their vehicles, it is wondered whether residents would take advantage if public facilities were available. This paper presents information about some vital aspects of TOD when viewed in suburban communities."
