Greening Transportation at North American Land Ports of Entry

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2013 - 2014

Building on recent work of the CEC on ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from freight transportation and along transportation corridors, this project analyzed vehicle emissions associated with border wait times and related health impacts, and proposed viable options and practices to reduce vehicle emissions from traffic congestion at terrestrial border crossings between Canada and the United States, and the United States and Mexico. The results of the studies were presented at two selected crossings.
