Abstract: In the last few decades, sustainable transportation has simultaneously gained traction in three, often polarized, sectors of the macro-environment. A flood of sustainable transportation research from academia, large scale investment in the private sector, and significant policy change in the public sector suggest that this topic has gained widespread prominence. These groups are independently progressing in many ways; as cities begin implement transportation alternatives, private companies are racing to develop alternative power sources, ride sharing options, and light-electric vehicles. Like any large-scale change, the progression of sustainable transportation is made up of endless opportunity but littered with challenges. A lack of collective information may be restricting large scale progress in the field of sustainable transportation. This paper aims to synthesize the knowledge from disparate domains with an aim to develop a holistic view of the sustainable transportation field.
