Accelerating Clean Transportation

The Midwest is America’s crossroads, as a hub of highways, airports, rail, and transportation manufacturing. The transportation sector is now the leading source of carbon pollution, but our region is well-poised to offer solutions. ELPC works to clean up the transportation system with policies and infrastructure solutions such as cleaner vehicles and battery technology, accessible and affordable public transit, pedestrian and biking opportunities, and modern intercity passenger rail.

ELPC attorneys litigate to advance strong regulatory standards for cleaner cars and trucks. Our advocates work with legislators and agencies to advance electric vehicle infrastructure and other forward-looking policies. We advance smart transportation investments, stop highway boondoggles, and spur high-speed rail development. To support car-free solutions, we are revitalizing the Chicago pedway system, securing funding for clean electric school buses, and fighting for better public transportation region-wide.
