CORRECTION: ASB - Zero-Emission Shuttle Bus Workgroup Meeting

Invitation to Participate

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a Zero-Emission Airport Shuttle Bus (ASB) public workgroup meeting.  The discussion will focus on survey results, incentives, cost numbers, outreach efforts, environmental analysis, and the proposed regulatory compliance schedule. This workgroup meeting is open to the public and in-person participation is encouraged. Please confirm your attendance by contacting staff.  The workgroup meeting will be held at the following time and place:

Date:          Monday, December 4, 2017
Time:          10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.*(PST) *Meeting may end sooner
Location:    Cal/EPA Headquarters Building
                   Coastal Hearing Room
                   1001 I Street, Second Floor
                   Sacramento, California 95814

This meeting will also be available via webcast for stakeholders who are unable to attend in person and can be accessed on the day of the meeting. Stakeholders viewing by webcast can submit comments and questions to staff during the meeting.

All meeting materials, including agenda and presentation, will be posted on the ASB meetings website.


Promoting the development and use of zero-emission airport transportation will help CARB achieve the emission reduction strategies outlined in the Mobile Source Strategy, 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 zero-emission electric technologies. Additionally, experience gained from demonstrating the viability of zero-emission operation in these fleets will benefit other heavy-duty on-road markets and enable cleaner transportation in other fields.

Environmental Analysis

At the workgroup meeting, staff will also provide an overview of CARB’s process for preparing the environmental analysis (EA) and its content.  Staff welcomes public input at the workgroup meeting on the appropriate scope and content of the EA at the beginning of our process, including the reasonably foreseeable methods of compliance with the proposal, the potential significant adverse impacts associated with the methods of compliance, potential feasible mitigation measures, and feasible alternatives to the proposal that could reduce or eliminate any significant adverse impacts.  A draft of the EA will be released for public review and comment in 2018.
