The realization of double carbon goal in China is a hot issue by means of promoting the public's low-carbon travel. In order to analyze the impact of environmental policy tools in Xi'an on public low-carbon travel behavior through a questionnaire survey, this paper proposes the hypothesis that environmental policy tools affect public low-carbon behavior, the 362 samples data show that: the high policy response of voluntary tools is conducive to improving the enthusiasm of the public to participate, and the economic incentive tools affect the cost and benefit of the public's travel choices and command-type policy tool mainly constrain the public's traffic travel rules. Environmental policy tools are an important mechanism to guide the public to choose low-carbon travel. Focusing on clear rules and regulations, flexible incentives, and smooth government-civilian interaction, it promotes the coupling of public low-carbon travel and the "dual-carbon" goal, and strengthens the public's green environmental protection.
