Drayage and Cleaner Truck Workshop-Outreach Materials

The Drayage and Clean Truck Regulations are emission mitigation efforts developed from Prop 1B-Goods Movement Emission Reduction Funding Program and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) ongoing efforts to reduce particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from drayage trucks. Drayage refers to any in-use on-road vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) greater than 26,000lbs used for transporting cargo that enter the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

The City of Los Angeles and Los Angeles Clean Cities Coalition is committed to reducing local greenhouse gas emissions. This webpage has been created as a resource guide for truck owners, businesses and environmental professionals concerning workshops, applications, and program updates for all Drayage and Clean Truck Regulations.

NEW MEETINGS in January 2012

California Air Resources Board’s Drayage Truck Priority Reserve Grant Program Individual meetings with applicants are being held by APPOINTMENT ONLY. Funding will pay for a portion of newer truck. The California Air Resources Board will send a notice to participants that qualify for the program. At the December 2011 California Air Resources Board Hearing, the Board approved priority drayage funding for truck owners whose truck(s) had a diesel particulate filter installed and was registered in the California Drayage Truck Registry (DTR) by June 30, 2010. Funds are available to replace these drayage trucks during 2012, in advance of the January 2014 Drayage Truck Regulation deadline.

What is the Drayage Truck Priority Reserve Funding and why did the CARB create this program?

Drayage Truck Priority Reserve Funding. Under the 2010 Program Guidelines, drayage trucks that were both equipped with retrofits and registered in CARB’s drayage truck registry as of June 2010 are eligible for the priority funding in the form of grants. To deliver the early or extra emission reductions required under the program, drayage trucks must be upgraded by the end of 2012 -- at least one year ahead of the December 31, 2013 deadline in the Drayage Truck Regulation.
