Transportation accounts for approximately one-third of greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions in the U.S., two-thirds of oil consumption, and about half of urban air pollution (U.S. EPA 2008; Davis et al. 2008; NRC 2006). Transport GHG emissions are also growing faster than those from any other sector, making transport a prime target for climate policy.
