Train US per passenger data is from the GHGP worksheet GHG emissions from transport or mobile sources v2.0. This category allows the user to calculate emissions from a US train journey depending on the distance traveled and the number of passengers.

The user selects the drill-down type to select the type of train from the following options.

  • light rail
  • tram
  • average (light rail and tram)
  • national rail
  • subway

The distance and numberOfPassengers are then entered as profile item values.

The algorithm returns a kg CO2e value, which includes CO2, N2O and CH4 emissions.
