ms-mailings -- Workshop to Discuss Strategy to Increase Deployment of Zero-Emission Vehicles that Transport Passengers to and from California Airports

Posted: 01 Feb 2017 10:19:48
The Air Resources Board (ARB) invites you to participate in a
public workshop on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, to begin the
discussion on how to accelerate the deployment of zero-emission
transportation at airports. 

The meeting will be held at the following time and place: 

Date:  Wednesday, February 22, 2017
Time:  1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Place:  Cal/EPA Headquarters Building
 Sierra Hearing Room
 1001 I Street, Second Floor
 Sacramento, California 95814

A meeting notice for the workshop is posted at
and more information on about the ARB’s airport shuttle bus
effort can be found at 

The workshop will be webcast for those who cannot participate in
person and may be accessed at https://video.calepa.ca.gov/ on the
day of the workshop.

Staff’s presentation and related materials will be available
prior to the workshop at

Directions to Cal/EPA headquarters and public transit can be

Background: Promoting the development and use of zero-emission
airport transportation will help ARB achieve the emission
reduction strategies outlined in the Mobile Source Strategy,
Draft State Implementation Plan and the Sustainable Freight
Action Plan.  Vehicles such as airport shuttle buses that operate
on fixed routes, have stop-and-go operations, maintain low
average speeds, and are centrally maintained and fueled are ideal
candidates for targeting zero-emission electric technologies. 
Additionally, experience gained from demonstrating the viability
zero-emission operation in these fleets will benefit other
heavy-duty on-road markets and enable cleaner transportation in
other fields.  The overall goals of this effort will: 

• Complement existing programs to achieve NOx and GHG emission
reductions through the use of zero-emission technology.

• Increase the penetration of the first wave of zero-emission
heavy-duty technology into transportation applications at
airports, such as buses that transport passengers to and from car
parking lots and airport terminals as well as those that
transport passengers to airport car rental facilities.
