 Q2 Progress

Reported March 2022

The transportation sector forms the single largest contribution of GHG emissions in Dallas (34%), of which 98 percent is attributed to on-road transportation. The majority (78%) of Dallas residents drive to work alone, while another 23.2% carpool, telework (4.8%), and use transit (3.8%), and other modes of transportation. In FY 21-22, 13 actions from this sector, with 27 milestones, will be initiated. Implementation of these milestones will involve collaboration between the following City departments:

  • Department of Transportation

  • Housing & Neighborhood Revitalization

  • Department of Convention and Event Services

  • Planning & Urban Design

  • Environmental Quality & Sustainability

  • Dallas Water Utilities

  • Equipment and Fleet Management

 

Note: Actions marked as ongoing span multiple fiscal years, meaning efforts will be carried out continuously and therefore will not be marked complete until the end of this fiscal year.
