Tell U.S. DOT to Address Carbon Emissions from Transportation

A new proposed rule from the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) considers requiring state and metropolitan transportation organizations to track, measure, and reduce carbon emissions as well as other air pollution from transportation projects. If enacted, this new measure would help increase investment in public transit, expand safe bikeways and pedestrian walkways, relieve traffic congestion, and clean up the air we breathe. But it won't happen without your support.

Transportation makes up 31 percent of all U.S. carbon dioxide emissions and is responsible for about 53,000 premature deaths each year. Reducing emissions from transportation will clean up our air and save lives.

We need your help to fix the problem. Tell USDOT you support this rule now.
