California ARB considers adopting zero-emission airport shuttle regulation

The California Air Sources Board will conduct a public listening to in February to think about a proposed Zero-Emission Airport Shuttle regulation. The regulation would require airport shuttles serving California’s 13 largest airports to transition to 100% zero-emission autos (ZEVs) by 2035. It could apply to private and non-private fleets, together with operators of parking amenities, rental automotive companies and inns. At the moment, nearly 1,000 private and non-private airport shuttles function on the 13 largest airports. The bulk use gasoline or CNG. CARB expects the proposed regulation to cut back CO2 emissions by 500,000 metric tons between 2020 and 2040. CARB says the regulation is not going to solely improve using ZEVs within the medium- and heavy-duty on-road sectors, but in addition present a bridge to ZEV adoption in different sectors.   Supply: CARB through Inexperienced Automotive Congress
