The County of San Luis Obispo (SLO), Regional Transit Authority (RTA) has agreed to pay $13,000 in penalties, $9,750 to the California Air Pollution Fund and $3,250 to the Peralta Community College District, for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by the ARB showed that SLO RTA Inc. failed to properly self-inspect their diesel buses to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSI). To settle the case, SLO RTA agreed to the $13,000 penalty and to comply with the PSI Program.
