How we can crash car culture

Even as Hawaii races to decarbonize, in the past five years, emissions from automobile transportation have gone up. It's no question that cars are embedded in American culture, but new forms of mobility will need to take front and center on the path to net zero emissions. 

Panelists explored ways to reduce vehicle miles traveled (VMT) via smart growth and transit-oriented development, multi-modal transportation, the role of autonomous and shared vehicles and, of course, vehicle efficiency. Aki Marceau, Elemental Excelerator’s director of policy and community for Hawaii, sat down with Andy Robbins, executive director of Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART), Harrison Rue, Honolulu’s head of Transit-Oriented Department (TOD) and Amanda Eaken, director of transportation and climate at NRDC.
