California's Senate Bill (SB) 743 recommends that public agencies use vehicle miles traveled (VMT) as the new metric for determining transportation impact on emissions and climate change.
In response, StreetLight developed a SB 743 Metric to assist any locality in performing a quick assessment of VMT change created by proposed construction projects. Our white paper explains the methodology behind the new Metric, and shares independent validation information.
