The goal of this project was to form policy recommendations to the city of Worcester to reduce vehicular greenhouse gas emissions. Strategies that other cities in New England use were examined and then modified to fit Worcester's needs. Researching available grants and laws that may affect these recommendations was also necessary. Some of the recommendations include: downsizing municipal fleets, using alternative fuels, establishing trip reduction programs, and educating the public about the importance of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
