Transportation Overview

Transportation Planning

The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (District) coordinates transportation and air quality planning activities with the 8 San Joaquin Valley transportation planning agencies (TPAs) that are within the San Joaquin Valley Air Basin. The District and the TPAs coordinate on mobile emissions inventory development, transportation control measure (TCM) development and implementation, and transportation conformity issues. In order to provide a forum for discussion of transportation and air quality issues a number of valleywide committees have been established. These include the Valleywide Air Quality and Model Coordinating Committee and Valleywide TCM committee. District staff regularly participate and provide technical information at monthly TPA committee meetings. For links to state and local Transportation Planning Agencies click here.


Transportation Technologies and Alternative Fuels

The rapid development and introduction of advanced transportation technology and the use of alternative fuels are very important for the District to meet its attainment deadlines. While the District is not directly involved in reducing tailpipe emissions from cars and trucks (this responsibility rests with the California Air Resources Board), www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/msprog.htm , the District actively supports the development and distribution of new transportation technologies, such as fuel cells and electric vehicles, and the use and distribution of alternative fuels, such as compressed natural gas and electricity through District grant and incentive programs.


Enhanced CEQA Review Program

In 1991 the District committed to an Enhanced CEQA Review control measure in its Air Quality Attainment Plan. This program requires the District to provide technical assistance to Lead Agencies in addressing air quality issues in environmental documents. In addition, it requires the District to comment on air quality impacts and suggest mitigation measures to reduce air quality impacts from development projects. To learn more click here.


Land Use Strategies

In recent years it has become widely accepted that the land use pattern is a critical factor in the type of transportation system that is developed, the amount people drive, and air quality. By planning land use patterns to support alternatives to the single occupant motor vehicle, emissions can be reduced and communities can become more livable. The District actively encourages decision makers with land use authority to make land use decisions that benefit air quality. This is accomplished through educational documents, outreach, and through the comments on individual development projects under the Enhanced CEQA Review Program.
