for the project on a New Direction on Transportation and Climate Change  
The Frontier Group at the Center for Public Interest Research is a leading voice about new mobility trends in the United States. In their recent report, "Millenials in Motion," they documented a decade of trends, such as fewer trips, shorter distances, higher use of bikes and transit in the U.S., which have led to a peak of total Vehicles Miles Traveled. Within that new context, the Group will use this grant support to create a new vision for the U.S. transportation sector to further reduce its carbon footprint and achieve 80 percent reductions by 2050. The Group will also propose a practical policy pathway that U.S. federal and state transportation agencies can implement.
