Metropolitan Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy
Document Description
An SCS is a required element of the MTP under California's Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Act, also known as Sen. Bill 375 (Stats. 2008, Ch. 728) (SB 375). While other efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions focus on alternative fuels and vehicle efficiency, SB 375 is intended to more effectively reduce emissions by integrating land use and transportation planning to reduce overall passenger vehicle miles traveled. Through the development of a Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) that accompanies the MTP, policies and strategies will be identified to reduce per capita passenger vehicle-generated GHG emissions.
