This study examines the policy beliefs of officials involved in developing and implementing sustainable transportation policies. It is found that officials tend to have stronger beliefs in the success of policies that impact less on personal freedoms of the public, and in particular, in policies that attract public support than force options upon them. It was also found that policy beliefs are positively related to officials' seniority.
