$5,500 in Fines Paid by Fresno County Rural Transit Agency
FRESNO COUNTY RURAL TRANSIT AGENCY SETTLES FOR $5,500
In February 2009, the Fresno County Rural Transit Agency agreed to pay $5,500 in penalties; $4,125 to the California Air Pollution Fund, $687.50 to the Peralta Community College District, and $687.50 to the California Pollution Control Financing Authority for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by the ARB showed that the Fresno County Rural Transit Agency failed to meet the Fleet Rule for Transit Agencies-Transit Fleet Vehicle Requirements (TFV), Title 13 CCR Section 2023.2 (a) (1) for NOx emissions. ARB documented violations as they related to the TFV. To settle the case, the Fresno County Rural Transit Agency agreed to the $5,500 penalty and to comply with the TFV and other ARB programs.
