EcoIntelligence transportation articles, speeches, and interviews.Articles and other written resources (including reports, interviews, book and anthology excerpts, PowerPoint presentations, and presentation transcripts) with a focus on transportation and mobility are included in this section. Switching to clean fuel technologies and increasing the use of alternative transportation methods that have a significantly reduced carbon footprint are key elements in environmental sustainability.

Plug-in hybrids, electric vehicles, bicycles, pedestrian friendly communities, cellulosic biofuels, and integrated mass transit infrastructure all have a part to play in meeting our transportation needs more sustainably.
