Natural Resources and Sustainability
The transportation sector is one of the largest sources of air pollutants and the most significant user of energy resources. Reducing use of transportation modes that rely solely on fossil fuels or emit greenhouse gases supports the community’s goal for improved environmental conditions and more sustainable mobility practices. Burlingame’s planned multimodal approach encourages the use of multiple transportation options. The following goal and policies identify ways the City can reduce congestion and provide more opportunities to reallocate right-of-way for green space and alternative modes of transportation.
Achieve air quality, sustainability, and greenhouse gas emission reduction objectives through technology upgrades and improved management of Burlingame’s streets.
