Description

Data by city showing transportation contribution to greenhouse gas emissions in the County. This data is part of the Regionally Integrated Climate Action Planning Suite (RICAPS) program.
The majority of cities used the “in-boundary” methodology that relies on data from the Highway Performance Monitoring System. The inventories for South San Francisco and Unincorporated County use the “origin-destination” methodology from that relies on data from Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC). So, directly comparing vehicle miles traveled (VMT) across all cities is not statistically possible.
Each city in San Mateo County has the opportunity to develop its own Climate Action Plan (CAP) using tools developed by C/CAG in conjunction with DNV KEMA https://www.dnvgl.com/ and Hara. http://www.verisae.com/default.aspx. This project was funded by grants from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E). Climate Action Plans developed from these tools will meet BAAQMD's California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) guidelines for a Qualified Greenhouse Gas Reduction
Strategy.
