Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Transportation: Emission Reduction Strategy Analysis [Technical Appendix]

Considerable positive fiscal benefits to investing in the reduction of greenhouse gases include 100,000 additional jobs created annually by 2030, $12-$18 billion in new Gross Regional Product, and $10 to $14 billion in new personal disposable income. This trend would be possible as long as new revenue gets put towards positive transportation investments that save travel time and reduce overall costs. More benefits that were found as a result of REMI economic analysis are energy independence from foreign oil, personal time savings, increased safety, reduced air pollution, physical activity increase, and reduced pavement and infrastructure damage.
