Quick Facts

# OF CARS

Our transportation system is nearly entirely reliant on private vehicles fueled by gasoline. Does every person need their own 4 person car? (According to the LA times, in 2014 there were 253 Million vehicles on the road in the US, alone.*)

GAS PRICES?

What will it look like when gasoline costs five, or ten dollars per gallon?

TRANSPORT

Post Carbon Transportation

The rural nature of our region has lead to the development of a transportation system that is nearly entirely reliant on private vehicles fueled by gasoline. We have already seen how vulnerable our economy is to sharp increases in the price of gas. What will it look like when gasoline costs five, or ten dollars per gallon? Before we find out, we need to develop a new transportation infrastructure based on walking, cycling, and efficient, affordable public transportation. Roads need to be built and maintained with the safety of pedestrians and bicycles in mind, as well as the accommodation of a new generation of lightweight electric and hybrid vehicles. A network of pedestrian and bicycle trails integrated with innovative regional public transportation will serve our lower income rural residents and help to revitalize our downtown communities. The development of a pioneering, forward thinking transportation system is a significant economic opportunity for the Western Foothills region and another step toward regional self reliance and reducing our emissions of greenhouse gases.
