Public Workshop on the Clean Miles Standard 

The California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) invites you to participate in a public workshop on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at 10 a.m., 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 methodology and assumptions for forecasting business as usual (BAU) emissions for TNCs in California.

DATE:                April 1, 2020
TIME:                10:00 a.m.
LOCATION:       Webinar

This meeting will be conducted through the GoToWebinar online webinar system and questions from participants will be taken using the webinar software.

Please register for the CMS Public Workshop Webinar before April 1, 2020, at
10 a.m., the workshop start time. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about joining 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). As part of SB 1014 CARB was required 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. As part of CARB’s efforts to develop these requirements, staff are developing the methodology and assumptions for forecasting BAU emissions for TNCs. The emissions inventory reflects forecasted activity and associated emissions in the absence of the Clean Miles Standard (CMS) regulation and is essential in establishing regulatory targets. 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 up over half of the transportation sector’s direct emissions.
