Information on the technical specifications of the taxi system was collected by 130 questionnaires. Taxi volume on nine selected routes was determined by vehicle counting. Real-time information on the driving behavior of taxis was obtained by GPS. Collected data were processed to generate input files to run IVE model associated with the base state and 4 selected air pollution control scenarios. Emission factors of air pollutants of the taxi system in Ha Long for these cases were determined. Climate and air quality co-benefits were assessed.
