Quantifying Transit’s Impact on GHG Emissions and Energy Use—The Land Use Component
TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report 176: Quantifying Transit’s Impact on GHG Emissions and Energy Use—The Land Use Component examines interrelationships between transit and land use patterns to understand their contribution to compact development and the potential greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction benefits.
The report is accompanied by an Excel-based tool
that applies the research findings. The calculator tool estimates the land use benefits of existing or planned transit projects. The report and tool will enable users to determine quantifiable impacts of transit service on compact development, energy use, and air quality in urbanized areas.
