Abstract: This working paper on private road transport uses two broad categories to organize decarbonization efforts in the province of Ontario: 1) cleaner vehicles and 2) transportation demand management. These categories represent the two key objectives of policies and mechanisms to develop a low-carbon transport system. 1) Reduce greenhouse gas emissions from passenger cars, and 2) reduce the number of vehicles on the road. Establishing an economy-wide carbon price supports these specific efforts.
