The Biden administration launched a multi-agency effort to decarbonize the transportation sector by 2050 on Tuesday. The first-of-its-kind plan, developed by DOE, DOT, HUD, and EPA, seeks to implement funding from the Inflation Reduction Act and bipartisan infrastructure law so as to both encourage the transition from ICE-powered cars to EVs as well as reduce Americans’ dependence on cars by making communities more walkable and bikeable and by improving the availability, convenience, and efficiency of public transportation.
