Integration into Transportation Decision Making


This report was prepared for the U.S. Department of Transportation's (USDOT) Center for Climate Change and Environmental Forecasting (CCCEF) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) by the USDOT's Volpe National Transportation Systems Center ( Volpe Center ), which is part of the Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA).

The Volpe Center project team consisted of William M. Lyons, project manager, Ben Rasmussen, and Lydia Rainville. Diane Turchetta of the FHWA Office of Natural and Human Environment was the overall project manager for the FHWA and the CCCEF, and wrote the case study on the Conference of the New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers (NEG/ECP). Mark Gaber of the FHWA Office of Natural and Human Environment wrote the New York Department of Transportation case study.

The project team recognizes the valuable insights provided by the CCCEF Core Team and by contacts for the case studies, including Kelly McGourty, Charles Howard, and Rocky Piro of the Puget Sound Regional Council; John Shea of the NEG/ECP; John Zamurs of the New York DOT; and the participants in the Transportation Research Board and Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations experts panels.

The project team provided contacts with the opportunity to review and comment on drafts of this report. Please note that contacts and the CCCEF are not responsible for the accuracy of the report, which is solely the responsibility of the project team.
