Report Intro/Brief:
"The Driving Boom - a six decade-long period of steady growth in per-capita driving in the United States - is now over. We don't yet know what will replace it. Will members of the Millennial generation continue to drive less than previous generations as they age? Will they revert to the driving patterns of their parents? Or will advances in technology and changes in transportation and housing preferences lead to further declines in driving in the years to come? This report explores these different possible futures and their high-stakes ramifications for transportation policy in the United States."
