Truck drivers around southern California have an opportunity next week to get personalized help in complying with the state’s Truck and Bus Regulation.
The California Air Resources Board will hold two informational sessions on Thursday, May 29 at the Double Tree Hotel in Ontario, Calif. The first session is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The second session is scheduled to run from 2 to 4:30 p.m.
Predicted to cost the industry more than $1 billion, the Truck and Bus Regulation requires most trucks and buses with a gross vehicle weight rating greater than 14,000 pounds to be upgraded either with diesel particulate filters or by upgrading to cleaner and newer engines between 2012 and 2023.
In an announcement posted to CARB’s website, the air quality agency said the meeting will include discussion about the regulation’s overview, good faith efforts to comply, funding opportunities, enforcement, approved and pending regulatory changes and a question and answer session. Attendees also will have an opportunity to obtain personalized fleet assessments.
The meeting has limited seating and reservations are required. To reserve your spot, contact Michael Donnelly at 916-445-7599 or by email here.
