From rapid motorization in developing countries to the increased use of ride-hailing services and electric vehicles in the United States, the transportation-air quality field is undergoing rapid transformation. STI’s Dr. Doug Eisinger, Chair of the Transportation Research Board’s (TRB) Air Quality Committee, co-authored Response to a Rapidly Transforming Field: The Transportation and Air Quality Committee’s Strategic Plan, which was published in the May-June 2019 issue of TR News magazine. The article discusses the committee’s response to these rapid changes in the transportation-related air pollution arena.
Dr. Eisinger oversaw the committee’s strategic planning efforts in 2018, which involved considering the information needs of transportation and air quality agencies, identifying under-studied transportation-air quality issues, and planning the committee’s work for the next three to five years. Dr. Eisinger has chaired the committee since 2017. TRB is one of the seven major programs of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
