Public Workshop on the Clean Miles Standard 

The California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) invites you to participate in a public workshop to learn about CARB’s plans for developing the Clean Miles Standard, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation network company (TNC) services. At this workshop, staff will update stakeholders on the base year GHG estimation methodology and emissions for TNC operators in California on a per-passenger-mile basis.

DATE:               Wednesday, September 25, 2019
TIME:                 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. 
LOCATION:       South Coast Air Quality Management District
                          21865 Copley Drive
                          Diamond Bar, CA 91765

The workshop will be available by webinar for those unable to attend in person. Please register prior to the workshop. For remote participants, staff will provide information on submitting questions via email during the webinar.


Staff’s presentation and any additional workshop-related documents will be posted prior to the workshop on CARB’s Clean Miles Standard website.

More Information


Senate Bill (SB) 1014 (Skinner, 2018) – the Clean Miles Standard and Incentive Program – was passed to develop and implement GHG emission reductions for transportation network companies (TNCs). SB 1014 requires CARB to establish by January 1, 2020, a GHG emission baseline for TNCs on a per-passenger-mile basis. This bill also requires CARB to adopt and set annual GHG reduction requirements for TNC companies by January 1, 2021. TNCs shall develop and submit a GHG emission reduction plan beginning January 1, 2022 and every two years thereafter, to meet the GHG reduction requirements, with compliance beginning in 2023. Additional workshops will be held throughout the development of this regulation to facilitate relevant discussions with stakeholders and gather input leading to the Clean Miles Standard regulatory proposal.

SB 1014 is designed to support the GHG emissions targets set forth in SB 32, which requires California to reduce GHG emissions to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030.  The transportation sector is the largest emissions category and accounts for almost 50 percent of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in California when accounting for fuel production, with light-duty vehicles making over half of the transportation sector’s direct emissions.
