Transportation Introduction Direct Emissions Indirect Emissions Behavior Change
Strategies Policies and Incentives Conclusion Outreach and Engagement Car Sharing Policies and Tax Incentives Problems:
Driving as Commodity
Inefficient Vehicles
Street Design

Incentives and Benefits
Discourage Bad Driving Habits
Accessibility and Infrastructure
H.E.Vs and Biofuels
New Technologies and Policies Reinventing Fire Reinventing Fire Recommendations for Direct Emissions
Convert to alternative fuels and electric vehicles

Accomplish level 2 for the Climate Smart Communities

Biofuels malfunction in cold climates

EV technology requires hiring of trained professionals

New charging stations have initial costs Recommendations for Indirect Emissions 1. Implement a policy similar to ASU, requiring a carbon offset
fee where results can be seen directly on campus

2. Develop a web portal to cultivate interactions

3. Offer incentives and training for study abroad students, faculty to choose direct flights

4. Survey faculty and staff to see how to best accommodate their carpool or car share needs *Goals
28% out of 1,053 University members drive alone
67% of 295 SOV riders do not have a secondary travel mode
1. affordable, hourly/daily rental rate (includes insurance)
2. fuel-efficient, hybrid, and plug-in vehicles (WeCar)
3. convenient locations on campus and Downtown Park & Ride Recommendations for More Efficient Vehicles Promoting Sustainable Transportation Options Behavior Change Strategies Incorporation into Existing Events
Campus Wide Competitions
Challenges & rewards
Effective Promotion & Advertisement Policies and Incentives Recommendations for Policies and Incentives Apply for alternative fuel tax breaks

Retrofit utility vehicles to run on bio fuels

Conduct research to determine:
Benefits of converting certain vehicles to AFVs
If application to ChargePoint America is feasible How do we get people involved? 1. Placement of WeCar vehicles near Eugene Amtrak station

2. Develop a well-advertised bike-sharing program (63% of 294 single occupancy vehicle riders are faculty and staff)

3. Distribution of information to University members Climate Smart Communities Scenarios Project:
Reduce roadway emissions from 4.05 MT CO2e to 1.2 MT CO2e by 2035, Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Policies and Tax Credit
ORS 283.327 Alternative Fuel Vehicle Acquisition, Emissions Reductions Requirements

26 US Code 30C and 36
Fueling equipment for electricity, E85, or diesel fuel blends containing a minimum of 20%

Biodiesel is eligible for a tax credit of 30% of the cost

Behavior Change Strategies
Conclusions 24 park-and-ride lots for free parking and transfer to public transit, carpool, etc. Make information accessible and individualized

Create incentives and trainings, especially for faculty

Build competitive, yet cooperative campuses Direct Emissions Indirect Emissions University
of Oregon At The Direct Emissions UO Fleet Efficient Vehicles Community Based Social
Marketing Efficient Vehicles Convert UO fleet, purchase new EVs to replace old vehicles.

Track and calculate air miles traveled

Develop interactive dashboard

Foster competition between universities

Distribute information on alternative transit available to University members

Indirect Emissions Landscape Infrastructure Integrated Planning

University Concerns
Faculty and Housing
Commuting UO's current carbon intensity is 87.8g CO2e/MJ
First goal is to reach 79.05g CO2e/MJ Second goal is to reach 71.15g CO2e/MJ Lower carbon intensity of fuels by 10% to 20% Normalizing sustainable transportation options

Incentives such as free material or awards

University to University competitions

Example: Portland Smart Trips
