This VMT/GHG calculator estimates the average weekday vehicle-miles of travel (VMT) from development projects or land use plans based on Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) or user defined daily trip generation data. Using a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions factor from the US EPA, the GHG emissions associated with the VMT are also calculated. Using a GHG emissions factor based on more local conditions will improve the accuracy of the GHG emissions estimate. Note that the full version of this tool can be calibrated to local conditions and can also be used to adjust trip generation to account for trip internalization and pass-by.
