California considers a shift away from "level of service" transportation analysis in CEQA environmental review

California is currently considering a shift away from the "level of service" approach to transportation analysis in the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) environmental review process.  

Anyone who has suffered through an LOS analysis knows how peculiar, finnicky, and often counter-productive the LOS approach can be.  Alternatives being considered:  vehicle miles traveled; automobile trips generated; multi-modal level of service; fuel use; and motor vehicle miles traveled.

For those interested in learning more about the State's proposed solutions, see the document below from the California Governor's Office of Planning and Research.
