The COVID-19 Pandemic and Transportation Engineering
In this editorial, we intend to discern some lessons for the transportation engineering profession that can be learned from the current catastrophe that can help us prepare for future disruptions.
COVID-19 Outbreak and the Transportation Industry: Effects, Prospects and Challenges
The transportation industry is an integral component of the economy and a common tool used for development. This is even more so in a global economy where economic opportunities have been increasingly related to the mobility of people and freight, including information and communications technologies.
Public Transportation in a Post‐COVID‐19 Microbial World
Passenger transportation systems are one of the major concerns in addressing the ongoing threats of emergent highly infectious diseases.

SDG&E Launches New EV Incentives Powering San Diego Fleets
California has been leading the charge to get more zero emission vehicles on the road in support of statewide goals to improve air quality and combat climate change. Electric vehicle (EV) deployments, particularly in the medium- and heavy-duty vehicle sectors that are largely dependent on petroleum-based fuels, are critical for the state to meet its climate-related goals as transportation is the single largest source of greenhouse gases, according to the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
2018 Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan Guidelines

County of Los Angeles COVID-19 Economic Resiliency Task Force Infrastructure Development and Construction Sector Recommendation Report
In the face of the COVID-19 crisis, the County must strengthen its commitment to sustainability, equity, and resilience in order to create a pathway for investment in a safe, healthy, and inclusive future.
California’s recovery efforts should include clean transportation
California can continue to lead in the transportation energy markets of the future by making investments that stimulate green transportation.
The Next Normal in Urban Mobility Doesn’t Look Anything Like the Old Normal
The news out of INRIX last week was not wholly unexpected. Just two months after hitting near-record lows, vehicle traffic in the US has already made up a majority of its pre-covid volume, with similar shifts being measured in several countries around the world.
It might be tempting, given these developments, to think that the “next normal” in urban mobility and sustainability is looking a lot like the “old normal”—but thankfully that’s not the full picture.
How micromobility can support a green economic recovery post-COVID-19
The transition to a post-COVID world is not going to be as simple as offering more micromobility options than before. How can service providers look to fill the void that COVID-19 has created?
California mandates zero-exhaust big rigs, delivery trucks
The requirements begin in 2024. By 2035, 55% of delivery vans and large pickups, 75% of commercial trucks such as garbage trucks and 40% of the big rigs sold in California must be emissions-free.
