Sustainable Transportation Solutions



Fast, accurate data for sustainable transportation projects.

CAV Vehicles navigating on a highway

Forward-thinking developers and urban planners are weighing the transportation and environmental impacts of new projects on their communities. One approach: reduce Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT), a metric linked to air quality, greenhouse gases, land use efficiency, safety, and energy consumption.

Whether you are under pressure to meet new regulations, such as California’s SB 743, or rethink quality of life measurements, TREDLite VMT will help you plan future developments with confidence.

What Is TREDLite VMT?

TREDLite VMT automates vehicle miles traveled calculations on land use projects. The cloud-based application leverages big data including aggregated and anonymized average trip distances and trip density. It informs municipalities’ planning initiatives and custom, sustainable transportation solutions. TREDLite VMT’s user-friendly interface makes it fast and easy to model scenarios and output projections.

Your One-Stop Shop for Sustainable Transportation Projects

Regulate environmental impacts

Evaluate project VMT Thresholds to regulate the environmental impact of your projects.

Predict air quality impacts

Predict project air quality and greenhouse gas emissions to understand direct air quality impacts.

Run mitigation scenarios

Test mitigation strategies with scenario planning if calculations exceed your project threshold.

Calculate internal trip capture

Automatically calculate internal trip capture using ITE rates.

Explore data quickly and easily

The platform is browser-based, meaning you can access the platform from the Cloud anywhere on your PC or tablet.

Simplify Sustainability with TREDLite VMT

Calculate Internal Trip Capture, VMT, and GHG Emissions

Evaluate project VMT thresholds and greenhouse gas emissions to regulate environmental impacts of your projects. Select your parcel and identify its intended land use. Then, calculate internal trip capture based of ITE rates, and calculate the VMT and GHG the site would generate to make data-driven decisions.

Test VMT Mitigation Strategies

Evaluate if your project exceeds existing jurisdictional VMT thresholds. If so, test mitigation strategies with scenario planning. Choose from a variety of scenarios to test strategies that would minimize your project’s environmental impact.

Features Include:

  • Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) Trip Generation
  • Transit Priority Area (TPA) Evaluation
  • National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) 684 Internal Capture Analysis
  • VMT Threshold Analysis
  • GHG Estimation of Mobile and Non-Mobile Sources
  • Criteria Pollutants Analysis
  • Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Evaluation Using the 2022 (CAPCOA) Guidance
  • VMT Fee-Based Mitigation Analysis (VMT Banking)
