August 16 & 21, 2018 - Low Carbon Transportation Listening Sessions
In his 2018 State of the State, Governor Cuomo directed New York’s environmental, energy, and transportation agencies to work together towards a cleaner, safer, and more reliable low-carbon transportation future. In response, these agencies (NYSDEC, NYSERDA, and NYSDOT) are hosting regional stakeholder discussions to encourage conversations around clean transportation. As your organization, community, or industry sector has considerable interest in transportation, energy and environmental strategies, your input is essential.
At these listening sessions, we discussed economic and social considerations for deploying clean transportation strategies and how individuals and organizations could support and benefit from opportunities to enhance environmental and public health benefits through a modernized transportation system. Also discussed was how innovative, low-carbon transportation may enhance quality of life or otherwise affect the competitiveness of sectors, businesses and communities, and what policies and programs may help advance this vision.
