The Metropolitan Transportation Commission and Association of Bay Area Governments considered July 19 a regional transit and environmental strategy to meet state greenhouse gas reduction requirements, including potential fees or taxes based on miles driven. The plan, which will be adopted by next April, will be part of the sustainable communities strategy required under 2008 legislation (S.B. 375) to integrate transportation, land use, housing, and environmental planning with the state’s climate policies. Forty percent of the area’s GHG emissions are mobile-related. The targets are scheduled to reduce emissions from 2005 levels by 7 percent in 2020 and 15 percent in 2035.
