“Transportation Operations and Infrastructure: Choices for Cleaner Air” features industry leaders sharing achievements and practical advice on ways to improve the way vehicle fleets perform and the way people commute.
The workshop consists of two panel sessions: The morning panel focuses on transportation operations, covering such topics as ridesharing, bicycling, timed rentals, emissions reductions, and cost benefits.
The afternoon panel highlights transportation system investments: fleet conversions, clean construction policies, emissions reduction systems, power plug-ins, alternative power units, and funding opportunities.
