Financing Sustainable Transportation: An Overview of Finance Mechanisms and Cases from the U.S. and Germany
Policy Report 54
This publication entitled “Financing Sustainable Transportation: An Overview of Finance Mechanisms and Cases from the U.S. and Germany” is part of AICGS’ project on The Transatlantic Climate and Energy Dialogue: Urban and Regional Transportation and Energy Problems and Solutions. Transportation policy is increasingly linked to land-use policy, and to climate change outcomes. In the U.S. and Germany, there is an increased desire to improve the sustainability of the transportation system, both environmentally and financially.
Policy Report 54 addresses a set of common challenges in the U.S. and Germany that also present opportunity for new ideas and policy changes: the economic crisis, demographic shifts, communication technology, and climate-friendly land-use policies.
