CARB amendments to on-road rule could affect long-haul trucks

| 5/25/2011

The California Air Resources Board has proposed several amendments to its on-road rule, also known as the truck and bus rule.

The amendments are described here.

The on-road truck and bus regulation requires all trucks to meet 2010 model year engine emissions standards by the year 2023. Fleets will be required to begin meeting other diesel emission standards by 2014 through a variety of compliance options.

CARB has developed an online calculator available here to help truck owners navigate the rule.
