CARB to convert its entire bus fleet to zero-emission vehicles by 2035 [free access]

July 8, 2019

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has approved a regulation to convert its fixed-route airport shuttle buses to 100 per cent zero-emission vehicles by 2035. California’s 13 largest airports will replace around 1,000 buses that are currently in operation. The deployment is expected to save over USD30 million owing to reduced fuel and maintenance costs. The details of the shuttle fleet need to be submitted to CARB by 2022.

 

In December, CARB approved conversion of the state transit buses to zero-emission vehicles by 2040.
