In this study, we develop a model to provide a policy framework guiding the transition of transportation systems to alternative-fuel powered ones. The model is capable of obtaining good subsidy strategies by solving an optimization problem that maximizes social welfare. Model results suggest a large net gain to the society from a well-planned transition.
