DescriptionOutlines new methods for estimating vehicle miles of travel (VMT) under current demographic and land use conditions and projecting VMT under alternative future conditions. Reports on the role that VMT estimates play in evaluating how changing land use patterns and demographics may ultimately affect regional air quality and forest health.
