Posted: 30 Aug 2013 16:31:40
Diamond Bar, California September 17, 2013 9:00am to 5:00pm.

The Air Resources Board (ARB or the Board) invites you to
participate in a public workshop on September 17, 2013, in
Diamond Bar, California, to discuss updates to the Zero Emission
Bus (ZBus) regulation and to explore the status of, and future
developments to, ZBus technology and related systems. 

At this workshop, ARB will establish the continued need for ZBus
technology development. ZBus manufacturers and technology
providers will discuss the current state of zero-emission bus
technology and where they anticipate this technology will be in
the near, and medium term future. In addition, transit agencies
will share their experiences with procuring zero emission buses,
operating within urban fleets, and maintenance challenges and
opportunities.  Staff plans to hold additional workshops
following this workshop to explore regulatory options and to take
comments on draft amendments prior to taking the regulatory
package to the Board in May 2014.          

Details of the workshop are as follows:

Date:			September 17, 2013

Time:			9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

attend in person.  The “Go To Webinar” sign up information along

The Zero Emission Bus regulation, first adopted in 2000, applies
transit agencies with 200 or more urban busses. The regulation
requires 15 percent of new buses purchases must be zero emission.
The regulation was amended in 2006, the Board pushed off the
purchase requirement to 2010, but gave the executive officer (EO)
the ability to suspend the requirement so long as cost,
durability and performance remained issues. The EO has suspended
the purchase requirement indefinitely since 2010. The board will
be considering changes or amendments to regulation which may
affect the 15 percent purchase requirement.
