For California DOT, EBP (formerly EDR Group) is part of the team developing the state’s 2050 multimodal transportation plan. The role of EBP is to lead the economic analysis, including analysis of the productivity and economic impacts of baseline and alternative policy scenarios.
The study is considering alternative policy scenarios involving transit and rail investments, along with road pricing, to encourage more efficient and environmentally sustainable future travel patterns. The economic analysis is examining how future scenarios can affect transit and rail modal choices, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support both economic prosperity and equity. The work of EBP Group involves working with Caltrans’ Economic Technical Advisory Team (ETAT).
