California PATH Rolls into Action at ITS America

California Partners for Advanced Transportation Technology made a big impression at the June ITS America meeting in in San Jose, Calif. by bringing along three Class-8 truck tractors for Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control demonstration rides.

“This was a great opportunity to raise the level of awareness about our truck platooning effort, our partnership, and our organizations in a significant way,” says PATH Co-Director Tom West.

US car sharing service kept 28,000 private cars off the road in 3 years

 Nearly 90% of Americans own cars, making the country a leader in traffic jams and pollution and costing the economy $124bn. Car sharing presents a good antidote to decongesting our roads – it gives people the freedom to drive whenever they want without the cost of maintaining and parking their cars.

According to new research released this month, each vehicle used for one-way car sharing, in particular, can eliminate as many as 11 cars from plying the streets and cutting greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 13 metric tons a year.
