Transportation Electrification Partnership Zero Emission Roadmap 3.0 Targets

The Transportation Electrification Partnership (TEP) is an unprecedented multi-year public-private partnership of local, regional, and state stakeholders committed to accelerating transportation electrification and zero emissions goods movement throughout the Los Angeles region in advance of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It does so by pursuing bold targets, pilots, initiatives, and policies that are equity-driven, create quality jobs, and grow the economy.

Established by LACI in 2018, the Partnership released Roadmap 1.0 that same year organized around the principal goal of reducing GHGs and air pollution in Los Angeles County by an additional 25 percent beyond existing commitments set for 2028. To achieve this goal, in 2019 the Partnership released Roadmap 2.0 that identified a clear pathway of ambitious, but achievable targets and a three-pronged call to action.

  • Accelerating the adoption of light-duty passenger electric vehicles (EVs) to be 30 percent of all vehicles on the road, and at least 80 percent of all vehicles sold by 2028;
  • Shifting over 20 percent of all trips in single occupancy vehicles to zero emissions public and active transit by 2028; and
  • Ensuring all public investment into goods movement infrastructure advances zero emission solutions, and ensuring the I-710 is the first goods movement corridor in the nation with ample charging infrastructure to support the transition to 40% zero emission drayage trucks by 2028 and 100% by 2035.

In December 2023, TEP released the Zero Emissions 2028 Roadmap 3.0, an ambitious update to the partnership’s targets for accelerating the deployment of electric cars, buses, trucks, and charging stations across the Los Angeles region. Achieving the Roadmap’s targets and call to action will result in cleaner air for LA residents and dramatically reduce the region’s transportation sector GHG emissions.

This dashboard presents information on those targets in terms of calculated progress and status of actions and investments driving those targets. This tool is intended to communicate how collective action influences those set targets, informing stakeholders, and inspiring involvement and support. More information on Roadmap 2028 3.0 can be found here.

The key components of this dashboard, and the tracking of Roadmap 3.0 actions include:

  • Targets: Established by TEP’s extensive modeling, the targets are specific and measurable outcomes that contributing actions drive (e.g., installing more EV Charging stations)
  • Metrics: TEP’s established method for calculating the progress of a measure compared to the target. For quantifiable measures, metrics describe progress towards a target through numerator-denominator construction: [current value/target value]Measures The quantitative or qualitative values of an action that are critical contributions to reducing GHG an additional 25% by 2028.
  • Quantitative Measures: Many Roadmap 2.0 actions result in outcomes that TEP can observe and measure through quantifiable values, such as the total number of EV charging stations installed at a moment in time, number of light duty vehicles that are registered as EVs, the total number of transit buses that are fully electrified. These traceable, verifiable values inform the critical percentages and thresholds for reducing GHG, outlined in Roadmap 3.0.
  • Qualitative Measurements: Several of the Roadmap 3.0 actions and targets are non-numeric and so the status cannot be tracked quantitatively. Instead, the progress towards these targets are described qualitatively.

Each target also includes important contextual detail, including current value, key statistics, explanation of status and other important information that we encourage dashboard readers to review.

Several of the goals in the Zero Emissions 2028 Roadmap 3.0 do not have specific measurable targets or cannot be easily tracked through quantitative metrics. Thus, the progress on these goals is described using qualitative measures.
