Making Carsharing Electric in Vermont

8.1 MB
Year:
2021
Theme:
Electric Vehicles, Transportation
Description:
This report details CarShare Vermont’s key findings and recommendations for effectively integrating electric vehicles (EVs) into shared fleets following a research-turned-pilot project. CCRPC funding supported research and planning, then CarShare Vermont self-funded a project to pilot our first EV with in-kind support from the Burlington Electric Department. The report provides more than 12 months of data about how the EV was used and by whom, its environmental impacts, and the financial and operational implications of converting to an electric fleet, as well as our recommendations for policies that will better support the integration of EVs into carsharing systems.

Railyard Enterprise Project Supplemental Scoping Final Report

4.8 MB
Year:
2020
Theme:
Transportation
Description:
In early 2013, the City of Burlington, in partnership with the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission and in close cooperation with the Vermont Agency of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration, initiated the Railyard Enterprise Project (REP). The REP aims to address multimodal safety, mobility, and operational transportation issues and to advance economic development opportunities in the southern waterfront area of Burlington by improving access and mobility through new urban streets. The REP followed an enhanced scoping process under FHWA’s Every Day Counts/Planning and Environmental Linkages (EDC/PEL) initiative. The result of the REP Scoping Study was the selection, by the Burlington City Council, of three REP alternatives to advance into preliminary engineering and permitting under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), a process required for using federal funds to finance transportation projects. This REP Supplemental Scoping Study is a follow-on to the REP Scoping Study and its goal is to further refine and evaluate one of those alternatives, Alternative 1B, and to explore the feasibility of implementing the project without federal funding, using state and local funds only, thereby needing to conduct a complex, lengthy, and costly NEPA process.

2019

CCRPC, in partnership with Cities of Winooski and Burlington, and the Vermont Agency of Transportation, completed this study for the US RTs 2/7 bridge over the Winooski River.  The purpose of the project is to improve safety for all users while maintaining structural integrity and continuity of this vital link between the two cities.  Several issues and needs motivated the parties to look at this bridge, including: 1) Addressing the condition of this aging bridge structure as it is in the latter stage of its service life, 2) providing designated safe lanes for bicyclists, 3) continuing the necessary two lanes of traffic in both directions, and 4) improving safety conditions for pedestrians.
