Project: Demonstration Project to Reduce GHG Using a South San Francisco Bay Trail Network to Replace Auto Trips

Description: The Bay Area Ridge Trail Council and the San Francisco Bay Trail Project will lead a collaborative demonstration project focused on the relationship of trails and transit in reducing GHG emissions. Specifically, this project will test and document best practices to leverage the potential of trails (and trails and transit) to reduce GHG. This project will work with employers and the local business council on transportation demand management programs (TDM) to encourage and track trail/transit mode shift and study behavior and choices. This project will also work with the City of San José and climate action experts on using trail count data to track and measure GHG, and explore a range of promising applications such as “trip planning” and other GHG “calculator” functions.
