LA County VMT by City (2016) (Modelled)

data.lacounty.gov | Last Updated 6 Dec 2019

Emissions from passenger vehicles and trucks are estimated based on VMT by vehicle type. VMT for each jurisdiction is estimated using trip-based travel forecasting models developed by Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). SCAG’s regional travel demand model analyzes transportation network and socioeconomic data such as population, household, and employment, to forecast daily vehicle trips for each traffic analysis zone (TAZ). Model outputs include: • Vehicle trips by type: including cars, light trucks, medium duty trucks, heavy duty trucks, and transit vehicles • Vehicle trip lengths by trip purpose • Vehicle trip origins and destinations Based on vehicle trips analysis, VMT calculations are performed for all cities within LA County (except for the City of Avalon), including unincorporated areas that are under direct County control. Using CARB Emissions Factors (EMFAC) model, CO2 and N2O emissions are estimated by multiplying emissions rates with vehicle activity data in all cities and unincorporated areas within the South Coast (SC) sub-area and the Mojave Desert (MD) sub-area. Sub-area emissions are then disaggregated based on speed bin by time of day and vehicle profile to estimate GHG emissions from into passenger vehicle and heavy duty trucks.
