Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States Seek Public Input As They Move Toward a Cleaner Transportation Future

Eight jurisdictions participating in the Transportation and Climate Initiative released a statement seeking public input on potential policy approaches to bring about a cleaner and more resilient transportation future across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region. Participants include: Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Exploring Regional Solutions to Improve Transportation and Reduce Emissions

More Jobs, Less Emissions
According to a 2015 report by the Georgetown Climate Center and Cambridge Systematics, a regional clean transportation program could:
  • Reduce carbon emissions between 29 to 40 percent by 2030

U.S. Department of Transportation Designates Electric Vehicles Corridors in the Transportation and Climate Initiative Region

Several major interstate highways in the Transportation and Climate Initiative region, including I-95, I-91 and I-87, were designated as “alternative-fuel corridors” by the U.S. Department of Transportation, recognizing the state support for electric vehicles (EV) in the region and setting the stage for the expansion of electric vehicle travel in the northeast and mid-Atlantic.

Five Northeast States and DC Announce They Will Work Together to Develop Potential Market-Based Policies to Cut Carbon Emissions from Transportation

Six northeast and mid-Atlantic jurisdictions recently announced they will work together to develop potential market-based policies to achieve significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and other pollution from the transportation sector. Developing such policies will build on the momentum created by the participating states’ successful clean energy programs and will create positive economic benefits, in addition to reducing the emissions that cause climate change according to a new study released by the Georgetown Climate Center.

Celebrating Five Years of Success

Five years ago, 11 northeast and mid-Atlantic states and the District of Columbia launched the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) to develop the clean energy economy and reduce energy use and emissions from the transportation sector. The initiative is facilitated by the Georgetown Climate Center and led by state transportation, environment, and energy officials in TCI jurisdictions, who gathered this week to celebrate the Initiative’s success during the Northeast Association of State Transportation Officials conference in Wilmington, Delaware.
