Sustainable Transportation Solutions



Fast, accurate data for sustainable transportation projects.

CAV Vehicles navigating on a highway

There is an ongoing shift in the transportation industry to improve transportation and environmental outcomes of planning initiatives. One solution to improve outcomes is to reduce Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) – a metric that is growing in importance given its close ties to air quality (AQ) and Greenhouse Gases (GHG), land use efficiency, safety, and energy consumption.

Whether you are under pressure to meet new regulations or you’re beginning to explore this shifting landscape, Kimley-Horn can help. Our transportation professionals have helped more than 25 clients, both in California and beyond, through seamless adoptions of their VMT guidelines—and this experience ultimately led to the development of our own sustainable transportation solution, TREDLite.

What Is TREDLite?

TREDLite is a cloud-based application designed to automate VMT calculations on land use projects. It leverages big data to inform local planning initiatives and develop custom, sustainable transportation solutions for municipalities of all sizes. TREDLite’s user-friendly interface makes it fast and easy to model scenarios and output projections.
