Toolbox for Transportation Resources: Sustainability

Guide for Transportation Information Resources from the NYSDOT Library

Sustainability

Resources selected by librarians from Massachusetts DOT, New Jersey DOT, Connecticut DOT, NYSDOT, Louisiana Transportation Research Center, and National Rural Transit Assistance Program. Coverage includes innovative strategies in planning and design, policies, best practices, bridges and highway, transit, maritime, aviation, pedestrian and bicycles, and alternative fuels.

Sustainability in Transportation

Created by librarians from the Eastern Transportation Knowledge Network, this guide identifies resources in sustainability for practitioners in transportation operations planning, design and management.  Innovative strategies, best practices, and solutions for achieving sustainability, and minimizing the impact of the transportation infrastructure on the environment, are presented in the guide.

The LibGuide is funded by FHWA Pooled Fund Study TPF-5(237), a collaborative effort benefiting the development of transportation library services and programs.
