This page last reviewed November 22, 2010

In October 2010, SFO Shuttle Bus Company agreed to pay $14,500 in penalties for violating air quality regulations:  $10,875 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $3,625 will go to Peralta Community College District to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) program.  An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that SFO Shuttle Bus Company failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards.  ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) and the Emission Control Label (ECL) requirements.  To settle the case, SFO Shuttle Bus Company agreed to the $14,500 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and ECL Programs.
