ITE Guide to SB 743

In order to assist ITE members with this transition, the ITE California SB 743 Task Force has prepared the attached ITE Guide to SB 743.

While there are many documents available that provide information on SB 743, the ITE Guide is written specifically for ITE members who will be preparing transportation studies under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) using the new VMT performance measure.  It may be particularly useful to ITE members conducting VMT analyses in areas where specific regional or local guidelines have not been prepared.

While the attached version may be used as-is for reference in conducting VMT analyses, it has been labelled as a draft in order to allow ITE members to make comments prior to preparation of a final version.  Any comments should be sent prior to August 14 to Erik Ruehr at

The ITE California SB 743 Task Force is a joint task force of the seven ITE Sections within California.
