Transportation and Climate Symposium

YOU ARE INVITED! Please join us virtually for the 2024 USDOT Transportation and Climate Symposium, in Washington, D.C. on July 11-12.

Climate and Transportation Symposium Announcement

The Transportation and Climate Symposium is a celebration of climate champions, solutions, and innovation towards transportation decarbonization, transformation, accessible communities, and mobility freedom for all. The event brings together decisionmakers from the private and public sectors including State, regional, Tribal, and local governments from across the country working across siloes from vision and strategy to implementation. This is also a venue for stakeholders and decisionmakers to announce new commitments to transportation decarbonization. The symposium will focus on available federal funding and awardees, best practices, technical assistance, and capacity building.

Background: The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Inflation Reduction Act, and CHIPS and Science Act represent a paradigm shift in climate responsiveness and an unprecedented investment in our freedom of movement, mobility choice, low-carbon opportunities, and vibrant communities. Executing on that vision for a 21st century transportation system, USDOT joined with EPA, HUD, and DOE in committing to a unified strategy for transportation decarbonization. In 2023, the four agencies unveiled the U.S. National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization. The Blueprint called for a decarbonized system that was convenient, efficient, and clean – meaning shorter distances between destinations, more fuel-efficient modes and mode choice, and deployment of electrified vehicles and alternative fuels. One year after that framework document was released, the agencies are developing climate action plans and implementing a whole-of-nation transformative vision for the movement of people and goods.
