Public Workshop on the Clean Miles Standard

The California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) invites you to participate in a public workshop on Friday, May 15, 2020, to learn and provide input on CARB’s development of the Clean Miles Standard, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation network company (TNC) services. At this workshop, staff will present and request stakeholder feedback on regulatory concepts and analysis. This will include assumptions used in electric vehicle miles traveled (eVMT) cost modeling, preliminary eVMT targets, progress developing the GHG targets, requirements for smaller TNCs, compliance reporting requirements, and a request for alternatives to the proposed regulation targets.

This meeting will be conducted through the GoToWebinar online webinar system and questions from participants will be taken using the e-mail during the workshop. Please register for the CMS Public Workshop Webinar before May 15, 2020. 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.

DATE:                Friday, May 15, 2020
TIME:                 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
LOCATION:       Register          


More Information


Senate Bill (SB) 1014 (Skinner, 2018) – the Clean Miles Standard and Incentive Program – requires CARB to develop, and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to implement, a GHG reduction program for TNCs. As part of SB 1014, CARB established a base year GHG emission inventory in January 2020 for the TNC sector on a per-passenger-mile basis. SB 1014 directs CARB to adopt annual targets for GHG reduction and electric vehicle miles traveled for TNC companies by January 1, 2021.

Throughout the development of this regulation, public workshops will continue to be held to facilitate relevant discussions with stakeholders and gather input leading to the Clean Miles Standard regulatory proposal, scheduled for Board consideration in December 2020.

The Clean Miles Standard will be 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 GHG emissions in California when accounting for fuel production, with light-duty vehicles making up over half of the transportation sector’s emissions. In 2018, TNCs contributed 1 percent of GHG emissions from the light-duty vehicle sector, and have been growing rapidly in California and globally.
