Air Quality & Environment
Goal: Reduce emissions that adversely affect health, quality of life, and the economy.
Key mobile source ozone and PM2.5 emissions give us insight into the progress we are making. The goal is to attain a 54% reduction in mobile emissions statewide by 2050 as compared to today.
The issue of mobility in Utah is a factor that is important to everyone. Our communities are spread out and the ability to move about is a critical concern. There are 3 areas of focus for Mobility.
- Reduce vehicle hours of travel
- Increase the share of trips using non-single occupant vehicle model
- Improve reliability of system

By the year 2050, the outcome we are planning for with the Unified Plan, is 4.7 fewer days per year spent driving per average household as compared to today.

As part of the Unified Plan, we look at ridership as a measurement tool to help us reach the outcome of 123% increase in transit ridership from 2019 to 2050.
