Materials will be posted on this website prior to the

The Clean Energy and Pollution Act of 2015 Senate Bill (SB) 350
(De León, Chapter 547, Statutes of 2015) established as a State
priority the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through the
promotion of various clean energy policies, including widespread
transportation electrification, for the benefit of all
Californians.  Transforming the State’s transportation sector to
support widespread electrification requires increasing access for
all residents, including low-income and those living in
disadvantaged communities, across a broad spectrum of clean
mobility options.  

SB 350 directs CARB to examine the barriers low income residents
must overcome to increase access to zero-emission and near zero
emission transportation and develop recommendations on how to
overcome these barriers.  CARB undertook a public process and
directly engaged local community members, including low-income
residents, to determine the main barriers to clean transportation
access.  CARB framed the results of this effort as a guidance
document, which provides a pathway to overcome barriers to clean
transportation and mobility options.  

The draft guidance document, formally titled, “Low-Income
Barriers Study, Part B: Overcoming Barriers to Clean
Transportation Access for Low Income Residents” (Draft SB 350
Clean Transportation Access Guidance Document), and supporting
Appendices are available for public review and comment at: 

The Draft SB 350 Clean Transportation Access Guidance Document is
an initial step in identifying the main barriers and providing
recommendations as a framework to address them moving forward. 
Recommendations include steps that the Legislature, communities,
State and local planning, transportation, and air quality
agencies can take to overcome specific barriers and begin to
formulate innovative, meaningful solutions.  Many of the
recommendations build upon the current programs State and local
agencies are implementing to increase access to transportation
electrification for all Californians.  

Meeting Information:
At this roundtable, CARB staff will discuss and seek input on the
Draft SB 350 Clean Transportation Access Guidance Document. 
Staff is particularly interested in stakeholder feedback on
recommendations to increase clean transportation access for
low-income residents, and what items should be given highest
priority over the next two years.

submit written feedback, please contact Ms. Ashley Dunn, Air
Pollution Specialist, at (626) 459-4385 or by email at
