SUBJECT: Best Practices
KEYWORDS: Environmental Impact, Environmental Issues, Pollution, Hazardous Materials
ABSTRACT: [From the Introduction] This annotated bibliography is the result of an effort by the Office of Policy, Federal Railroad Administration, to determine the extent to which models had been developed that permit comparisons among transportation options as to environmental impacts. The bibliography covers recent publications that describe or offer insights into environmental effects of transportation systems and how public policies are addressing transportation related environmental issues. The citations are organized by specific environmental media. However, a single transportation system or event may result in multiple environmental considerations. Therefore, the media boundaries are not exclusive, and the reader should consult citations under related categories as well. All articles and reports have been published in English unless otherwise noted.
