America saw record lows for vehicle miles traveled (VMT) during COVID-19. As drivers stayed off the road, most cities saw greater than 70% drops in their normal VMT output. Residents reported quieter, safer streets, less pollution, and more wildlife.
What if your city took permanent steps post-recovery to incentivize more people to work remotely, or provide safer bike lanes to keep them out of their cars? How would a 10% — or a loftier 20% — reduction impact your city’s ranking on our 2019 Transportation Climate Impact Index? Look up your city and adjust the slider to find out!
