Transportation Toolkit for Town Volunteers

How community volunteers can tackle the climate impacts of
our car-centered transportation system
In Vermont and New Hampshire, transportation is the largest single source of greenhouse gases. These emissions must be addressed on the national, regional, state, and local levels; this toolkit is for community volunteers who would like to locally tackle the climate impacts of our car-centered transportation system.
This toolkit is made up of three parts.
  1. Introduction: context, priorities, and strategies for approaching transportation projects
  2. Projects List: a couple dozen projects that are volunteer-friendly and will make a difference
  3. Resources: organizations, government entities, toolkits and guides, and reading material
Read the Introduction before diving into Projects List, and always check online for the most up-to-date Projects List and Resources, which will grow over time as we all learn what works best. (Current version: October 2019)
