Los Angeles County is the birthplace of air quality science. The latest science tells us that a rapid adoption of zero-emission vehicles and infrastructure throughout the transportation system will reduce the negative
impacts of the transportation sector on residents, especially those who live near major roadways.
When combined with cleaner sources of electricity and an overall reduction in vehicle miles traveled, a zero-emission transportation system will reduce pollution and deliver cleaner air. A key to this transformation
is a commitment to transitioning from fossil fuel combustion to zero-emission vehicle technologies.
The transportation sector is rapidly evolving, with new technologies and business models presenting new mobility options to consumers at a breakneck pace. These emerging trends provide opportunities to reduce
emissions and expand access and mobility. However, public agencies will need to keep up the pace to address safety, sidewalk accessibility, and other issues to ensure the benefits are enjoyed by all residents.
